Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is reportedly an admirer of Paris Saint-Germain playmaker Adil Aouchiche as the London giants line up a possible transfer.

The 17-year-old playmaker is attracting interest from several clubs at the moment as it seems like he won’t sign a new deal with Parisians.

It stays to be seen if Gunners can win the battle for Adil’s signature, but it does seem like he’s ready to be on his way out of the Parc des Princes in the near future.

Aouchiche could move for nearly €4m, which could quite possibly make him an absolute bargain and another astute purchase by Gunners in the long run.

After a difficult few years, the Gunners seem to have revamped their recruitment a little, leading to some smart signings of top youngsters like Gabriel Martinelli and Matteo Guendouzi on the cheap.

Adil could be another addition in that mould if Arsenal can pull it off, and it sounds like Mikel Arteta is keen for the club to get this move done. The Spanish manager will no doubt be desperate to put his own stamp on this struggling squad he inherited from Unai Emery.
