Report: Arsenal and Everton open talks to sign Juventus midfielder

French outlet Le10Sport have claimed that Arsenal have joined Everton in talks to sign Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot this summer, with the Old Lady placing the six-time Ligue 1 champion on the transfer list.

Rabiot, 25, is expected to leave Juventus after becoming disillusioned at Juventus since his move to the Italian champions last summer from Paris Saint-Germain. Juve’s enormous central midfield competition has limited Rabiot to just 16 starts.

Indeed, Blaise Matuidi, Sami Khedira, Aaron Ramsey, Miralem Pjanic and others have limited Rabiot to just a handful of appearances and it is clear that he will leave – though the report states he will cost at least £26million.

 

Arsenal, who have repeatedly been linked with a move Rabiot, have joined Everton in opening talks over a move for the midfielder. Carlo Ancelotti previously worked with Rabiot, though, and that may prove crucial in Rabiot’s next decision.

TBR’s view – Rabiot and Partey would give Arsenal top-four midfield

Arsenal have been heavily linked with Atletico Madrid brute Thomas Partey and a move seems as though it could occur this summer. Landing the Ghanaian, and Rabiot, would be stunning Arsenal business.

Combining the two players behind a more attacking midfielder, such as Mesut Ozil, would give the Gunners a midfield capable of pushing the north London side into the Champions League places.
