Arsenal are set to receive 20% of Jeff Reine-Adelaide’s transfer fee to join Olympique Lyonnais, rather than the 10% previously reported.

As Reine-Adelaide edged closer to an Angers exit, reports suggested Arsenal held a 10% sell-on clause for the 21-year-old.

The Gunners also had a matching clause, meaning that from the date of Angers agreeing on a fee to sell, Arsenal had 14 days to decide whether to match the fee and buy the player back instead.

With Lyon confirming the signing of Reine-Adelaide on Wednesday, it’s clear Arsenal decided not to utilise their matching option. However, various sources have now confirmed the sell-on clause is actually higher than previously claimed.

Charles Watts of Goal wrote on Twitter that Reine-Adelaide’s sell-on clause is 20%, and this percentage was corroborated by the Evening Standard.

Reports suggest Reine-Adelaide’s transfer fee was a base €25m (£23m) with between €2.5m and €5m in bonuses. That means a minimum of £4.6m in the bank for Arsenal.

The club also made around £4.35m for Ismael Bennacer’s transfer from Empoli to AC Milan this summer, so their sell-on clauses are working out pretty well right now.
