In light of Manchester Citya s A?30 million bid for Jack Wilshere, Arsenal seem to have an option for a younger replacement, in the form of young PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
The 20-year-old is considered as one of the most promising young midfielders in France at the moment, and has been struggling to get playing time, under Laurent Blanca s regime, at the Parc des Princes.
Thus, Rabiota s agent and mother Veronique has met with Olivier Letang, Sporting Director, PSG, and told him told him that the Frenchman wants to leave the club, in search of more playing time, according to Canal Supporters.
a Adrien loves and is attached to PSG, it is the club of his heart. He wants to have a career here. But ita s not possible,a Veronique was quoted saying in the . Daily Express.
a Are PSG trying to tarnish Adrien because we have asked for a transfer? If Adrien leaves PSG, he is not leaving for the sake of leaving, he is leaving in order to play.a
Rabiot has been linked with a move to the Premier League, with top clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham reportedly pursuing his signature.
The 20-year-old is reportedly looking to move expressly to the Premier League, which means that Arsenal can once again resume their interest in the Frenchman.
The Gunners have been trying to sign the French youngster for almost a year now, with PSG snubbing their efforts in 2014. However, with Veronique speaking out, it seems Rabiota s days in Paris are numbered.
With a high pass accuracy of 88.9 per cent, Rabiot could fit seamlessly into the Arsenal setup. He also puts in 2.1 tackles every game, which is an aspect that The Gunners require in their midfield.
This could very well be filled up by Rabiot, and if Wilsherea s rumoured move to Manchester City does happen, Rabiot is likely to get much more playing time than he is currently looking for.
