Rabiot has been a long time target of Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool, but the news source has reported on Boxing Day that a deal to take him to White Heart Lane is close.

The 19-year-old midfielder signed a new contract at PSG, until 2019, but has failed to nail down a starting XI spot for the Ligue 1 champions.

Spurs have seemingly been short of midfield options in recent weeks as newcomers Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason have been the club’s preferred starting duo.

Mauricio Pochettino also has Benjamin Stambouli, Mousa Dembele, Paulinho and Etienne Capoue to call upon, but at least two of those names are being tipped with moves away in the new year.
