Arsenal are close to signing the 17-year-old midfield prospect Yacine Adli from Paris Saint‑Germain, according to The Guardian.
The paper report that Arsenal have offered him an initial three-year contract, although it contains options, after he rejected professional terms at PSG, where now-Arsenal boss Unai Emery handed him his first-team debut.
Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing RB Leipzig defender Lukas Klostermann, report the Daily Express.
Emery is keen to strengthen his defence and Klostermann was a key man at the heart of the RB Leipzig back four last season.
Arsenal’s hopes of signing Juventus defender Daniele Rugani this summer are all but over, according to the player’s agent.
There have been reports that the Gunners were plotting a move for Rugani – but his agent Davide Torchia has played down speculation.
“Juventus have always considered him unsellable and have never considered selling him,” he told TalkSport.
“The club are very satisfied, they have great respect for the lad and don’t want to deprive themselves of his football qualities.”
