Adil Aouchiche has passed a medical with St Étienne, but not yet signed a deal with them

L’Équipe confirm initial Goal France reporting from last week that 17-year-old PSG attacking midfielder Adil Aouchiche has undergone a medical with Ligue 1 side St Étienne ahead of a possible free transfer move for when his current deal with Les Parisiens expires later this month.

ASSE boss Claude Puel has made the teenager the club’s summer transfer window priority, but ultimately Aouchiche left the Rhône region without having signed his first professional contract.

His three agents continue to play multiple sides off each other in an attempt to increase the size of the signing bonus that their client and them would receive.

Lille have actually pulled out of the race entirely owing to their distaste at the way the teenager’s representation is conducting itself.
