Report: 'Complete player' would much rather join Tottenham than PSG this summer

Adrien Rabiot prefers a move Tottenham Hotspur over a return to his former club PSG during the summer transfer window.

The Telegraph report that Rabiot wants to test himself in the Premier League and wishes to join an English club who are in the Champions League next season.

That puts Tottenham, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea, who are managed by Rabiot’s former Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel, in the frame.

The report says that PSG have been linked with a swoop for the French midfielder but he has absolutely no interest in going back there.

Rabiot prefers Tottenham over PSG

Rabiot has just one year remaining on his Juventus contract, and that raises the prospect of him moving for a reduced price this summer.

The report says he would be available for between €15-20 million (£13-17 million), but he is not yet in negotiations with any English club.

The midfielder has made it clear he wants to leave Turin after a season in which Juventus finished fourth, and they have agreed to let him go.

Rabiot is one of those players who has been perennially linked with the Premier League, but could it happen this summer?

Champions Manchester City seem to be set on signing Kalvin Phillips from Leeds to bolster their midfield.

Liverpool do need new blood in their engine room but seem to have concluded their summer business with the signing of Calvin Ramsey.

Chelsea need new faces, and Tuchel’s relationship with Rabiot could help, but reinforcements are more urgently required in other areas.

Tottenham were linked in April but have just signed Yves Bissouma, which may mean that the man described as ‘complete‘ by his former Juve boss Andrea Pirlo may be frustrated this summer.
