Adil Aouchiche will sign his St Étienne contract on Monday

RMC Sport report that 18-year-old French midfielder Adil Aouchiche will sign his professional contract with St Étienne on Monday.

The French youth international will sign his first professional deal with Les Verts, which will be three years in length. The teenager who has taken a few days worth of holiday, will begin his new adventure under the orders of Claude Puel, who played a big role in convincing Aouchiche to make the move in the first place.

Puel successfully argued to Aouchiche that it made more sense for his immediate career to move to ASSE rather than stay at PSG, despite Lille and Bayer Leverkusen pushing right until the very end.

Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Rennes, Arsenal and Leicester all also made approaches in recent weeks.
