Arsenal’s delve in the yet to be opened transfer window seem to be heading in several directions with the Gunners being linked to an avalanche of stars. Both those featuring in the ongoing World Cup competition in Brazil and those not, with no signing made yet.
However that is not the same with other club giants as we have seen the likes of Chelsea snapping up Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona just a week ago.
Now Juventus have reportedly signed 18-year-old midfielder Kingsley Coman from French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
The young prodigy; who at the age of 16, became the youngest player ever at the French club to make his debut after having being raised by the club since he was age 9 – has been out of contract since the season ended and will arrive on a free transfer.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus fought off hard challenges from fellow Serie A rival – Roma and a handful of English clubs to secure the services of Coman, who turned 18 years old on June 13.
The youngster, who has made three first team appearances for PSG over the last two seasons, is highly-rated in France and had reportedly attracted interest from Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.
PSG were keen to keep Coman at the Parc des Princes and offered him a new contract, but the 18-year-old feels he has a better chance of first team football elsewhere.
And despite interest from the Gunners and German giants Bayern, Coman has snubbed other interests and has agreed a five-year deal with Serie A champions Juventus.
The young star will hope to follow in the footsteps of fellow Frenchman Paul Pogba in Turin.
