Report: Tottenham ready to register interest in Arsenal target Rabiot
Tottenham Hotspur are ready to register an interest in Adrien Rabiot and join the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea in the race to sign the 27-year-old ahead of the summer, according to a report from Calciomercato.
Rabiot is enjoying a superb campaign with Juventus, scoring five goals and contributing two assists for Juventus. He also bagged France’s equaliser in their 4-1 win over Australia at the World Cup.
Rabiot, of course, came close to moving to the Premier League in the summer. However, Calciomercato reports that talks with Manchester United broke down over his £166,000-a-week demands.
Tottenham ready to register interest in Rabiot
Nevertheless, his future with Juve remains uncertain with his contract expiring in the summer.
Calciomercato suggests that Arsenal and Chelsea are both prepared to offer Rabiot the terms he is looking for. But it is also claimed that Tottenham will also look to join the battle.
Fabio Paratici is a big fan of the Frenchman.
Spurs fans are likely to have their concerns should Paratici pursue a deal for Rabiot. Even on a free transfer, he will not come cheap at all.
Didier Deschamps suggested that he is ‘very important‘ to the France national team. And he described him as an ‘intelligent’ player.
But it also fair to say that Rabiot has waited some time to rediscover his best form. And with that, there are not necessarily any guarantees that he is going to be a smart signing.
Certainly, some fans will be wary of their club getting carried away off the back of his form at the World Cup.
But it also says a lot that a number of Premier League heavyweights are looking at Rabiot. Perhaps the thought of missing out to one of their rivals is what is driving the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham.
