Arsenal encouraged as PSG whizkid Aouchiche pushes for exit

Arsenal are eyeing PSG whizkid Adil Aouchiche, according to reports.

The 17-year-old attacking midfielder is highly-rated around Europe after his displays at the Under-17 European Championship, which included nine goals in five matches.

One fan is Mikel Arteta, according to ESPN, and the Gunners are hoping to make a move.

Aouchiche and his family believe it is right time to leave Paris, with opportunities limited in Thomas Tuchel's star-studded team.

St Etienne, Bordeaux and Lille are trying to keep Aouchiche in France.

But his wage demands are far too high for them, leaving Arsenal in a good position to secure his signature.
