Well things certainly have changed from the Wenger era as it would appear that after the official Arsenal website confirming that we had signed Stephan Lichtsteiner yesterday, we now have reports that we have signed the PSG youngster Yacine Adli from Paris Saint-Germain on a three-year contract.
The Metro got the story from France and reported it thus….
Arsenal have completed their deal to sign Yacine Adli from Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports in France. The 17-year-old midfielder is widely regarded as one of the brightest prospects in European football. Adli reportedly rejected the offer of a professional contract from PSG, which means he would be able to officially sign a deal with Arsenal when he turns in July. Arsenal would have to pay a €255,000 (£223,000) compensation fee to PSG in order to sign Adli. According to RMC Sport, the midfielder has committed to a three-year contract with Arsenal, which also has the option for a further two seasons.
Adli is only 17 but made his debut for PSG in Unai Emery’s last game at the French giants, and is tipped to have a massive future. To get such a prospect for just £223,000 is an amazing bit of business!
So two signings done already. I’m beginning to like this new setup!
