Three days ago news was reported that the Portuguese starlet was being monitored by the club along with Louis van Gaal’s side and it appears that Arsene Wenger has ensured the deal is completed before the transfer window this summer.
Quina supposedly walked out of Chelsea training earlier this week after claiming that he no longer wanted to be at the west London side.
The 16-year-old had been at the Blues since the age of 13-years-old but it appears his time is coming to a drastic end, with Premier League title hopefuls Arsenal swooping in.

Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are also believed to have been interested in the midfielder, who will join the Arsenal academy and likely be sent out on loan next season in order to stake his claim for a place in the side.
