PARIS Saint Germain midfielder, Adrien Rabiot is very much on Arsenal’s radar with the club eager to try and sign the 23-year-old when he becomes a free agent in the summer. Rabiot looks certain to leave the Parc des Princes in the summer having been banished to the reserves since contract negotiations fell through in early December.
The midfielder has since appealed to the French football authorities claiming the treatment goes against the league’s ‘professional footballer’s charter’. While Thomas Tuchel has hinted at reconciliation by including Rabiot in his Champions League squad for the second half of the season, suitors are already circling.
Barcelona were heavily tipped to sign the player in January before looking elsewhere. Bayern Munich and a host of English clubs have also been linked.
It seemed he’d be signing for Barcelona [on a free] but they’ve signed a player for that midfield position, Frenkie de Jong. There are credible reports that Arsenal will come back in for Rabiot.
