Arsenal & Crystal Palace have made a proposal for Bilel Hassaini

Arsenal and Crystal Palace have made proposals for 18-year-old AS Nancy Lorraine attacking midfielder Bilel Hassaini, according to Foot Mercato.

The French U17 international has refused to sign a professional contract with ASNL, but his priority remains to join PSG instead, who have also tabled a bid.

Arsenal’s project for the youngster is to integrate him into the U23 set-up and to play him in the Youth League, whereas the Eagles are understood to have told the player that they would place him in their 1st team squad immediately.

Nancy are looking to do the deal with PSG, having directly contacted Les Parisiens to receive the €300k due in youth formation compensation before the 1st July, as they face serious book-balancing issues.
