Paris Saint-Germain look set to prevent youth academy graduate Yacine Adli from signing a professional contract with Arsenal.
ESPN claim “a source close” to the Ligue 1 club says the 17-year-old will now pen senior terms with PSG, despite travelling to London for talks with the Gunners.
Adli travelled to The Emirates with his agent Moussa Sissoko last weekend and was pictured in the capital, but PSG sporting director Antero Henrique persuaded Adli that his future lies with the Ligue 1 champions and not with former PSG boss Unai Emery.
Midfielder Adli was set to join Arsenal on a three-year deal, having rejected PSG’s offers of a professional contract and he had been spotted at St. Pancras station in London.
Arsenal were proposing to pay the Ligue 1 giants a compensation fee of €255,000 for Adli’s services, before the youngster performed a U-turn.
