Arsenal ‘to miss out on midfielder following guarantees in counter offer’

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Yacine Adli will reject a switch to Arsenal after being handed guarantees over a three-year deal at the Parc des Princes.

Adli, 17, is highly-rated in his homeland and Gunners chiefs were keen to take him on a pro deal – where they would pay less than £300,000.

And he had looked set to move to the Emirates.

But a fresh proposal from PSG sporting director Antero Henrique, featuring guaranteed playing time at the Parc des Princes, has reportedly led to a change of heart.

According to L’Equipe (via Inside Futbol) , he is now set to remain in the French capital.

New deal for Maitland-Niles

Arsenal starlet Ainsley Maitland-Niles has penned a new long-term contract at the Emirates, writes Jacob Murtagh.

The promising 20-year-old is a product of the club’s academy and enjoyed a breakthrough season at the Emirates Stadium during the last campaign.

While former boss Arsene Wenger utilised Maitland-Niles mainly as cover at full-back, he still went on to make 28 appearances for the club.

With the Gunners in the Europa League last season, Wenger used the competition to blood a number of highly-rated youngsters.
