Arsenal & Tottenham face even more transfer competition for Golden Boy nominee

Napoli are the latest club to be linked with Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot ahead of a potential January transfer.

The elegant starlet has been heavily linked with a move away from the Parc des Princes in recent months, with North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur both understood to be keen on the France U-21 player [Independent].

However, interest in Serie A is increasing for the player, and both the Gunners and Spurs are set to face competition from Napoli, as well as Champions League runners-up Juventus, and Rudi Garcia’s AS Roma according to Le 10 Sport.

The midfielder admitted recently [Telefoot via the Mirror], that he had asked PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi for a loan move away from the Parc des Princes during the January transfer window in order to earn more playing time.

Despite making strides in the first team over the last few weeks, it would come as no surprise if Rabiot received a temporary move away from the French capital during the January window, although it remains to be seen whether Serie A or the Premier League will be his destination.
