Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Jeff Reine-Adelaide could become Arsenal’s 11th summer exit, with Arsene Wenger set to sanction a loan move for the midfielder. Ligue 1 club Nantes are said to be interested in bringing him down to Stade de la Beaujoire for the entirety of this season.
The Frenchman was a part of the first team last season and is highly rated by the manager, but an injury at the end of the previous season saw him excluded from the Gunners pre-season tour of Australia and China as well as the Emirates Cup. He played with the Under-23 team against Lincoln City and Boreham Wood, but seems to have fallen down the pecking order in the running for a spot in the first-team squad.
The 19-year-old was on the fringe of the first team last campaign having appeared in a total of six games across the EFL Cup and the FA Cup, but has lost his place and his squad number – 31 – which was handed to new intake Sead Kolasinac.
Fellow Ligue 1 club Nice was said to be interested in paying for the midfielder, but according to talkSPORT, Nantes are the frontrunner in the race to sign him with negotiations scheduled to take place soon. Reine-Adelaide is unlikely to be the last of the players to depart before the end of the transfer window after Wenger confirm the need to reduce the squad due to the high numbers.
