Paris, Aug 28 : After refusing to train with Paris Saint-Germain for two days, French teenager Adrien Rabiot is reportedly close to joining English Premier League club Arsenal.
According to Sky Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio, the 19-year-old midfielder has provisionally accepted a contract with the Gunners and now his agent and mother are in London to finalise terms, reports Xinhua.
The deal is believed to be worth 11.9 million pounds (about 15 million euros), a bit higher than Arsenal's initial bid of 9.5m pounds (about 12 million euros).
Arsene Wenger's side is still waiting for the Ligue 1 champions to accept the offer on the table, but with the player showing refusing to train, Paris Saint-Germain are under pressure to sell.
At just 17 years, the talented Rabiot played top flight football in a PSG shirt, but failed to earn a regular position in the team over the last two years.
