According to RMC in France, Arsenal have completed a deal to take Yacine Adli to the club this summer.
The 17 year old was linked last week with a move from PSG, reuniting with former boss Unai Emery, and the French news outlet say he’ll play his football in North London next season.

The Gunners will reportedly have to pay somewhere in the region of €200,000 compensation to the Ligue 1 side with from whom he rejected contract overtures.
He would clearly be a signing for the future, perhaps looking to make a breakthrough to first team football via the League Cup and Europa League as the new boss juggles those competitions with a need to be more competitive in the Premier League too.
The club announced its first signing of the new era yesterday, as 34 year old Stephan Lichtsteiner joined on a Bosman after his deal with Juventus ran out, and it’s expected that Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos will be confirmed this week as Emery adds more experience to squad’s defence.
