Everton fans have been reacting to reports that contact has been made with Adrien Rabiot’s mother about her son’s availability in January.
According to Foot Mercato, the Toffees are looking into the possibility of signing the French playmaker, who has struggled for regular minutes at Juventus.
The star signed for the Italian giants ahead of the current season after running down his contract at Paris Saint-Germain, but has found opportunities hard to come by so far.
Apparently Everton have spoken with Rabiot’s mother Veronique, who acts as his agent.
Carlo Ancelotti was the man who promoted Rabiot to PSG’s first-team back in 2012, making a transfer link going into January not all that surprising.
Also interested in Rabiot are Arsenal, who were linked before he decided to move to Turin.
Given it’s early days for Rabiot at Juve, a transfer in January would surely be unlikely.

The reaction from Everton supporters to a possible deal for Rabiot was fairly mixed on social media:

Rabiot now. At least it’s fun seeing the names we are being linked with since Ancelotti arrived, even if they’re almost all nonsense https://t.co/GpHhFufpZL
