Arsenal have been boosted in their attempts to sign Adil Aouchiche after the highly-rated midfielder informed Paris Saint-Germain he wants to leave the club this summer.
The north London club are now on their worst seasons for few season now as they are struggling to seal a spot for Europe competition next season, with the Gunners losing some so their best players to injuries. Mikel Arteta is now focus on recruiting few quality players that will bolster the team attacking force ahead of next season, with this season Europe competition spot in danger.
The 38 years old Spanish manager have been monitoring the current situation of Paris Stain-Germain midfielder, Adil Aouchiche.
Adil Aouchiche has been at Paris Stain-Germain since he joined the club’s youth system in 2014 and he’s emerged from the ranks as one of the most exciting young talents in French football following a string of impressive displays for club and country in recent times.
However, the 17-year-old has been capped 12 times at U18 level for France after scoring 16 goals in just 25 appearances at U17 level and he’s broken into Thomas Tuchel’s first team squad at PSG with 1 goal in his 3 appearances so far this season.
The 17 years rising star Aouchiche isn’t happy with the number of opportunities he’s been given in Paris as the Daily Mail are citing a report from RMC Sport that claims the teenager has informed the league1 giant he wants to leave this summer, with Arsenal in the race to sign the wonderkid.
Meanwhile, the news will come as a huge boost to the London club as the says Mikel Arteta is desperate to sign Aouchiche with a low release clause on him as he looks to overhaul his struggling squad and he wants the youngster to be part of his revolution at the Emirates next season.
Arsenal are still enduring a disastrous campaign as they are struggling to even qualify for the Europa League following Saturday’s defeat to Brighton after city. Now Arteta knows he needs to make big changes to his squad if the Gunners are to build a competitive side that will be eager to bring back glory to the team.
The Spanish manager will be working on a shoestring budget as money is going to be tight at the Emirates Stadium due to the current financial difficulty so a cut-price deal for Aouchiche will certainly be appealing.
17 years old Adil youth contract will expires at the end of the month and it appears he won’t be signing a professional deal with the league1 giant, so Arsenal can snap him up without the need to pay a big transfer fee for the wonderkid.
The newspaper report also reveal that the attacking midfielder wants a contract worth £22,000 a week deal and his sign-off fee would be in the region of £3.6m, so the transfer would definitely be within the Gunners reach if the player option for the London club.
