Arsenal have completed the signing of 17-year-old forward Jeff Reine-Adelaide, as they look to maintain youthfulness in their team.
Reine-Adelaide may be on track to start, as manager Arsene Wenger revealed the French forward will be a part of the Gunners’ first team in pre-season action, according to The Metro.
“You will see Jeff Reine-Adelaide [in pre-season],” Wenger said.
Reine-Adelaide will look to become the Gunners’ next young star, but he will have to compete with the likes of Sanchez and Olivier Giroud for a place in Wenger’s attack.
Gonzalo Higuain may enter the equation as well, as Arsenal have extended a £43.3m offer to Napoli for him.
The Gunners are looking to challenge for the Premier League title again after finishing in third place behind Chelsea and Manchester City last season.
