Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is said to be looking for a swift solution to end his talented midfielder Jeff Reine-Adelaide’s frustrations over the lack of first-team action.
Widely touted as one of the best young talents to have broken through the ranks at Arsenal, the 19-year-old Reine-Adelaide has find it difficult to get into the first team at the Emirates and looks set for a loan spell in order to continue his development.
Adelaide made just six first-team appearances last season across all competitions and did not make it in the team during preseason.
Wenger rested his faith into the hands of another youngster Reiss Nelson instead, who used his chance thanks to some rather impressive displays which got him praised by both manager and teammates at Arsenal.
Having left Adelaide out of the first team Wenger has sent a clear message to his highly-rated midfielder who will need to look elsewhere for regular minutes.
French media outlet L’Equipe claims that Arsenal have offered their youngster to Ligue 1 side Nantes, who appear to be extremely keen on taking the exciting talent onboard for the upcoming season.
Jeff Reine-Adelaide is contracted to Arsenal until 2019 and a potential season-long spell would still see him return to London with another year remaining in his deal.
Arsenal begin the new Premier League season on Friday night when Gunners will lock horns with Leicester City at the Emirates.
Wenger’s men are given 8/15 betting odds to emerge victorious from their square-off with Foxes.
