With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Borussia Dortmund playing a waiting game with Arsenal, the Premier League club is working hard to implement other January transfer plans.
According to reports coming from France, Gunners have set their sights on Paris Saint-Germain attacking midfield prospect Yacine Adli.
The 17-year-old talent is dubbed the French Fellaini mostly due to the same hairstyle, but his emerging talents could help him become an even a greater player than Manchester United midfielder in the future.
Adli’s emerging talents have alarmed the likes of Bayern Munich and Barcelona who are also keen on signing the PSG starlet but Arsenal are said to have entered the race as well on a promise of more first-team opportunities.
Arsenal are well-established as a club which acts as a perfect platform for youth development and with Sven Mislintat joining the backroom staff at the Emirates Gunners have stepped up their efforts of signing the very best talents Europe has to offer.
Yacin Adli fits the mould perfectly as a France Under-17 international who’s been capped 16 times and scored six goals for the national setup thus far.
The youngster however scored just one goal in mere five youth side appearances this season and is said to be looking for a way out as he understands breaking into the star-studded first-team in Paris would be almost impossible.
