Bilel Hassaini: A youngster in demand
Whilst the big name superstar transfers keep everyone engaged during the summer transfer window, there are also some jewels to be found for nothing.
One such case is that of French youngster Bilel Hassaini, who is available on a free transfer as he is set to leave Nancy in Ligue 2.
Paris United, a reliable source of news when it comes to PSG, have reported that the Ligue 1 champions were interested in Hassaini, but have now pulled out of the race.
The Under-17 attacker was of interest to PSG, but they have now turned their attentions elsewhere, and it seems likely that Hassaini will ply his trade outside of France.
Crystal Palace & Arsenal keen on Bilel Hassaini
Paris United confirm that two Premier League sides are keen on Bilel Hassaini: Crystal Palace and Arsenal.
As you might imagine, Arsenal are ahead of Crystal Palace in the chase for this much sought-after youngster, who has represented France at Under-17 level.
In addition, both Valencia and Barcelona are also tracking developments.
Paris United tip Hassaini to end up at one of the Premier League clubs, since the entourage of the young attacker prefers “to move across the Channel.”
