Arsenal have completed the signing of Paris Saint-Germain star Yacine Adli.

The 17-year-old is widely regarded as one of the brightest prospects in European football after being persuaded by new Gunners manager Unai Emery who gave the midfielder his debut when he was with Ligue Champions.

According to RMC Sport, Adli has reportedly rejected the offer of a professional contract from PSG before penning three-year deal with the option to sign for two more.

The attacking midfielder who has played for his country at Under-16, U17 and U18 level with France, Adli has scored 13 goals in 23 appearances at the national team level.

Arsenal announced the first recruit of Emery’s tenure on Tuesday with Switzerland right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus. The club are also in talks with Borussia Dortmund centre-half Sokratis Papastathopoulos.
