Arsenal in pole position to sign 17-year-old French rising star

The London giants have received a boost in their chase of Adil Aouchiche as the playmaker has told PSG’s hierarchy that he wants to leave.

The Sun claim that Arsenal manager has identified the French playmaker as a possible target as Arsenal look set to operate on a very limited transfer budget this summer.

It’s added that the Parisians were keen on tying the talent down to a new contract, with the ace being integrated into the first-team this campaign, Adil has made three senior appearances this term.

The report adds that the France Under-18s starlet is set to demand a signing on fee of £3.6m, as well as weekly wages of £22,000.

Arsenal will need to battle Saint-Etienne for Aouchiche’s signature, the Ligue 1 outfit are currently leading the race for the ace but it will be interesting to see if they can meet his demands.

Saint-Etienne and Gunners are two clubs that have a wonderful track record of developing youth players into stars, Arsenal know just what they’re competing with as they signed William Saliba from the French outfit last summer.

With Ligue 1 sides perhaps set to face the biggest financial losses of teams in Europe’s top five leagues, after the decision to curtail the campaign, it’s fair to assume that Arsenal will be better equipped to meet Aouchiche’s demands.
