Arsenal and Tottenham target Adrien Rabiot has claimed that he will not hesitate to quit Paris Saint-Germain when the transfer window re-opens in January if the Ligue 1 champions sign more big-name players in his midfield position, according to reports in the Daily Express.

The highly rated France Under-21 international, who has been attracting the attentions of a whole host of Premier League clubs of late after a string of eye-catching displays for the Parisians so far this season, has been at the Parc des Princes for his whole career.

Rabiot, 18, made his debut for PSG in August 2012 under previous head coach Carlo Ancelotti, playing nine matches in total in all competitions under the Italian in the previous campaign, before being shipped out on loan to Toulouse.

Meanwhile in this season, with new manager Laurent Blanc at the helm, the midfield player has featured in eight games already, scoring his first-ever goal for the club in the process, but now the player says that he will be quite prepared to leave the French capital in the search of regular playing time in the new year should his compatriot decide to bring new stars in to play in his role in the side.

“I know it is important to the leaders and supporters. But that’s not enough,” Rabiot told Le Parisien.

“If it is to be set aside on the day where others players are recruited in my position, it is not worth it.

“I do not want to live the way Mamadou Sakho did.

“After a while, when he realised he would not play much, he took the decision to leave and he did well.

“If a new midfielder is recruited in the winter transfer window, it will change the game for me.

“I would then think about my future.”
