nelka, 17, has signed a six-year deal with the Londoners for an undisclosed sum.

Gunners manager Arsene Wenger had hoped to sign the French under-21 international on a free transfer at the end of the season when his contract at PSG runs out.

But because of the "excellent relationship'' between the clubs, Wenger said a compromise had been reached.

Wenger continued: "Nicolas is not yet 18 and we hope he has a very bright future in front of him at Arsenal.

"It has always been my ambition to bring in quality players to enhance the squad not just for this season but for the future as well.''
