Arsenal take a 1-0 lead to Rome for their Champions League second leg and the Gunners have won on 3 of their last 4 visits to Italy.

Uefa chief Michel Platini has seen his plans to ban transfers for any player under the age of 18 supported by clubs, leagues and associations.

Platini wants international transfers involving players under 18 banned and at a meeting of the Professional Football Strategy Council in Switzerland, his plans were given approval.

The Professional Football Strategy Council comprises elected representatives of the associations, clubs, leagues and players from throughout Europe, and advises Uefa’s Executive Committee on issues of strategic importance for European football.

“The question of minors is above all a moral and ethical issue – we have a duty to take concrete steps to protect young players and training clubs,” said Platini.

“I am delighted that the key stakeholders of the European football family have a common view on this major subject and I welcome the signature of this important resolution.”
