Arsenal are venturing into a new era under the guidance of Unai Emery and it seems the Spanish boss is set to raid his former employers.
The Mirror is one of a number of outlets reporting that Arsenal are set to win the chase for highly-rated Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Yacine Adli, who is snubbing the offer of a fresh deal in the French capital.
17-year-old France youth international Adli has become disillusioned in Paris and Emery, who worked with the teenager at PSG, looks set to win the highly-coveted chase for the attacking midfielder’s services.
Set to sign a three-year deal at the Emirates Stadium, the tall talent has attracted plenty of attention in recent years and has been convinced by Emery’s new project in the Premier League.
He may not be the only young talent to swap the bright lights of Europe for north London, as Goal report that Arsenal are closing in on the services of Barcelona starlet Joel Lopez.
