Arsenal seem to have accepted that midfielder Aaron Ramsey is set to leave at the end of this season.
According to Sky in Italy – via Sky Sports News – Ramsey will join Juventus next season when his Arsenal contract expires.
As a result, Unai Emery needs to start considering players to replace the Welshman in his Arsenal squad.
The Gunners signed Denis Suarez on loan from Barcelona and he is a potential Ramsey replacement if Emery decides to make his deal permanent.
But alternatively, he could offer a contract to Adrien Rabiot, who will be available as a free agent next summer.
Rabiot does not look like he will sign fresh terms with Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal lead the chase for his signature, The Express reports.
The 23-year-old could be an ideal option given his perfect blend of youth and experience, plus the fact that he would be a bargain.
Despite his young age, Rabiot has played well over 200 games for PSG, as well as 13 on loan at Toulouse.
The 6-cap France international is highly rated by PSG and by the French national team and he is seen as a future central midfielder for Les Bleus.
Arsenal could get the best years out of Rabiot if Emery can convince him to move to North London on a free transfer.
