Arsenal are reportedly planning a raid for Paris Saint-German star Yacine Adli according to L’Equipe.
Adli looks set to snub a long-term future with Paris Saint-Germain, who were desperate to keep hold of the 17-year-old, and offered him a lucrative first professional contract.
His current situation has alerted the likes of Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid for his signature.
The teenage starlet is a versatile talent, who naturally plays in the central midfield but at times, he has been deployed in the No.10 role as well.
In the last campaign, Adli featured in 7 UEFA Youth League fixtures for PSG and scored one goal. So far, he has made 7 appearances for France’s U-18 side and scored 3 goals.
Arsenal’s head of recruitment is believed to have been a long-term admirer of the midfielder and had even started the process of trying to persuade him to make the move to Borussia Dortmund, his former club.
But when Mislintat switched from Dortmund to Arsenal at the end of the last year, his focus obviously switched to bringing the midfielder to the Emirates.
