Arsenal have completed the signing of PSG prodigy Yacine Adli, according to reports in France.
The sensational 17-year-old central and attacking midfielder is widely regarded as one of the brightest prospects in European football.
The French youngster 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 18 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.
The report claims that Arsenal had been in talks with Adli even before Unai Emery was appointed as Arsene Wenger’s replacement, and the midfielder was ‘seduced’ by the Gunners’ proposal. Adli was given his senior debut by Emery this season as he came on as a late substitute in PSG’s final game of the season against Caen.
Adli has represented France at various youth levels and provided the most assists at the Under-17 World Cup last October.
