Arsenal’s Jeff Reine-Adelaide sell-on clause revealed as top clubs circle Angers star

Arsenal, Angers & Jeff Reine-Adelaide

Last summer, Arsenal sold Jeff Reine-Adelaide to Ligue 1 side Angers.

Reine-Adelaide joined the Gunners in 2015 from Lens, however, the French midfielder never made it at Arsenal.

He only managed a total of eight appearances for Arsenal’s senior side, and all of those were in cup competitions.

Soon after Unai Emery replaced Arsene Wenger in the Gunners dugout, Reine-Adelaide was sold to Angers.

Race to sign Jeff Reine-Adelaide

Now 21, Reine-Adelaide made an impression in 2018-19 in Ligue 1.

He played 35 league matches, scoring three goals and chipping in with three assists.

This weekend, French paper Ouest-France have reported that Angers president Said Chabane is willing to sell the former Arsenal midfielder for 20 million euros.

Ouest-France note that Angers only paid Arsenal 1.5 million euros for the midfielder, adding that some of Europe’s biggest club are now chasing Reine-Adelaide.

They include AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen, Lyon, Lille and Porto.

Arsenal’s Jeff Reine-Adelaide sell-on clause

In a final point of interest, Ouest-France confirm that Arsenal have a sell-on clause related to Reine-Adelaide.

However, that clause only stands at 10%.

Yet, considering reports that Arsenal only have around 45 million pounds to spend this summer, any extra funds could help Unai Emery.
