Arsenal tipped for Bennacer deal as Malen signing is confirmed

It has already been a very busy Summer for Arsenal at youth level in terms of acquisitions, and it appears that the recruitment drive might not be over yet, with the Gunners being heavily linked this morning with a move for attacking midfielder Ismael Bennacer.

The 17-year-old French youth international previously seemed set for a move to Manchester City, but L’Equipe claim that Arsenal are set to offer the player a five-year contract to move from Arles-Avingon.

Meanwhile, the signing of Dutch youngster Donyell Malen has been formalised after he was pictured putting pen to paper on his scholarship contract. The striker joins from Ajax’s esteemed academy.

Arsenal U19s face their Celtic counterparts in a tournament in South Africa later today.
