Rabiot recently admitted in an interview with Telefoot, as per Goal, that he had asked PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi for a loan move away from the club in order to secure more first-team football.
The midfielder has often struggled to assert himself at the Parc des Princes amidst the capital club’s myriad of options in the heart of the park, and is understood to have been keen for a move away in order to realise his potential.
As per the Independent, both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur were understood to be primed to answer the call to rescue Rabiot from his PSG malaise [Independent], even if the elegant midfielder has featured more regularly in recent months.
Similarly, Calciomercato [via Le 10 Sport] noted that AC Milan were also eyeing Rabiot ahead of a potential January move.
However, as per L’Equipe [via talkSPORT] all three of Rabiot’s mooted suitors are going to be left disappointed.
The report notes that PSG are unwilling to sanction a temporary move for the midfielder, and that only a lucrative permanent transfer will change their minds.
20-year-old Rabiot was recently nominated for the prestigious Golden Boy award [Express].
