Yacine Adli has hit back at reports suggesting that he had performed a U-turn over his proposed move to Arsenal.

The PSG starlet was thought to be on the brink of a move to the Gunners after Adli was reported to have signed a three-year deal with the north London side.

The 17-year-old is billed as one of the brightest talents in French football to make his signing quite a coup for Arsenal.

French media outlet RMC claimed that Adli was ready to change his mind about his proposed switch to the English capital from the Ligue 1 champions.

PSG have made the teenager an offer to remain at Parc des Princes and speculation over the weekend suggested Adli could remain in Paris after all.

However, Adli has taken to Instagram to shed light on the transfer reports.

Adli wrote: “You have no idea what you’re on about.”

Arsenal signed Switzerland international Stephan Lichtsteiner in a free transfer from Serie A giants Juventus last week.

The Gunners haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04 when the north London side finished the season unbeaten.

Arsenal finished in sixth spot in the Premier League table last season to miss out on Champions League football for the second successive season.
