Report: Arsenal and Liverpool all in regular contact over Rabiot

Arsenal and Liverpool have been in regular contact with the representatives of Adrien Rabiot as he edges closer to becoming a free agent, according to a report from 90min.

Rabiot is attracting a lot of attention after an impressive start to the campaign with Juventus. He has also played a key role in guiding France to the World Cup final in Qatar.

And it seems that the interest in the midfielder is building. His contract with Juve is set to expire at the end of the season.

Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool have remained in touch with his representatives. Meanwhile, Chelsea and Manchester United are also admirers of the former Paris Saint-Germain star.

Rabiot has been something of a divisive player during his career. And it appears that he will not come cheap, even on a free. Calciomercato recently suggested that he could demand a deal worth £166,000-a-week at his next club.

90min reports that he would be prepared to consider a less lucrative contract for the right project. But clearly, the amount of interest in him increases the likelihood of Rabiot being offered the terms he wants from somewhere.

Arsenal need to strengthen in the middle of the park. The trio of Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka and Martin Odegaard have been outstanding. But they need further depth.

Liverpool certainly need more in midfield. The arrival of Rabiot’s teammate Arthur Melo has not yet worked out. And some of their stalwarts have struggled in more recent times.

Tottenham do have a raft of options. So they do not need to spend huge sums on midfielders. And that may be why signing Rabiot on a free transfer may appeal to Antonio Conte.
