The summer transfer window may be a few months away from officially opening, but Arsenal are already making giants strides to seal up deals for their transfer targets ahead of time.
Arsenal have reportedly completed the surprise transfer of RC Lens’ teenage sensation Yassin Fortune according to Metro.
The Gunners have reportedly made their second signing of the summer after beating Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham last week to the signing of Luton wonderkid Charlie Patino.
The reports says the Gunners have wrapped up a three year deal for their second signing of the summer – Yassin Fortune, again beating the likes of Manchester United and other French Ligue 1 outfit to his signature.
Fortune who is a regular for the France under-16’s is a versatile midfielder as he is also comfortable playing in a more advanced attacking position.
The 16-year-old sensation however, will have to wait a few more years before he can eventually stake his claim in Arsenal’s senior side. But many have strongly suggested that the Gunners have signed for themselves a future star of French football.
