Arsenal keen to discuss potential deal for French starlet…
Arsenal are set to request talks with Paris Saint Germain over 19-year-old midfielder Adrien Rabiot, with Italian duo Juventus and Roma also in the hunt for the player’s signature.
The French giants want £5.6m for the player, despite the fact that he is out of contract at the end of the season, and can speak to foreign clubs from January onwards.
Reports in the Daily Mail claim that Arsene Wenger has firmed up his interest in the France under-21 international, who was linked with the Gunners earlier this summer.
The source adds that Rabiot is keen to move and earlier in the summer saw a move to Roma reportedly fall through. He has also yet to feature for PSG so far this season after a public fall out over his lack of first-team opportunities at the French giants.
Rabiot made 34 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring three goals. He his highly experienced at youth level with his county, having played at every international level below the first-team.
