The 19-year-old currently faces an uncertain future at the club having turned down the offer to sign a new deal with the club at the end of the previous campaign.

However, though he has not completely rejected the opportunity to extend his stay with the Ligue 1 champions, Arsenal are hoping to take advantage of his situation by making a bid to bring him to London.

Arsenal scouts are known to have watched him in action for the French Under-21 team as well as during his loan spell with Toulouse in 2013.

London rivals Chelsea have also previously expressed an interest in snapping him up, but the opportunity to play for Arsene Wenger could prove too great to resist.

The Parisians are thought to value Rabiot at around £8million, and Arsenal would be able to offer him a large increase on his current £8,000-a-week salary.

Since breaking into the PSG first team back in 2012 Rabiot has gone on to make 36 appearances for the club, scoring three goals.
