Arsenal sent transfer message after midfielder Adelaide gets summer deal signed and sealed!
Highly-exciting talent Jeff Reine-Adelaide has admitted it was not easy leaving Arsenal this summer after he completed a move to Angers.
The 20-year old arrived at the club way back in 2015, as one of the most promising young singings under Arsene Wenger, but for one reason or another failed to hit the heights that the Frenchman had hope he would.
And unfortunately for Adelaide he was forced pack his bags and make permanent move to Angers, where he has spent the last six months of the season on-loan.
But he has revealed that leaving the Gunners was not a decision he took lightly, and that the love he felt while on-loan at Angers was a big selling point to why he left the Emirates.
He said: “It was hard for me to stay three years there, knowing that I was almost never playing and that I only participated in training.
“It was a very complicated situation.
“It was not easy to leave Arsenal but the loan I made here last season from February to May weighed heavily. It’s a family club here, I needed that.”
Wenger made sure he beat off a number of Europe’s top clubs to land Adelaide, a player he once described as ‘something special’.
Wenger once hailed Adelaide ‘as something special and tipped him to become one of the Gunners future stars, but it probably was the right decision to leave the club as he only made eight appearances during his three-year stint with the club.
