La Parisien claims the two Premier League clubs are interested in the 18-year-old midfielder Adrian Rabiot who has now made 17 Ligue 1 appearances, though still largely from the bench. Rabiot is already playing for France’s Under-21 side and there are high hopes for the youngster’s future across the Channel, but he has stalled on the offer of a new deal to extend his stay beyond 2015.
PSG are adamant the teenager will not leave in the current January window, but with the bottomless funds and foreign talent filling the squad there is little chance for Rabiot to get the first team opportunities.
Chelsea are reportedly also after the youngster but very recently they have completed the signing of Matic who was initially their youth product. And Arsenal have probably the best depth in the Premier League in the midfield department. Considering Flamini was a free signing Arsenal could offload him at a good price and land Rabiot for the future. This will only upgrade their squad.
