Juventus could sell Adrien Rabiot to Newcastle before moving for Tottenham target Aurelien Tchouameni as his replacement, according to TuttoJuve.
The Italian publication claim the Magpies could secure a move for Rabiot, 26, in the January transfer window, where a potential deal would set the club back around £25 million.
The move would make the midfielder one of Newcastle’s first acquisitions following the club’s Saudi-led takeover, while the report adds he could sign a contract worth €10 million (£8 million) per year.
The report also claims that Juventus see Monaco starlet Tchouameni as a direct replacement for Rabiot, and could snap him up from under the noses of Tottenham, who too hold an interest in his services.
The 21-year-old is reportedly worth around £35 million and it was suggested that Spurs had been keeping tabs on his performances in France ahead of a proposed move.

Tchouameni is one of the world’s hottest prospects and he is very valuable especially as he is a central midfielder. This move seems like a domino effect waiting to happen, but Spurs should not sit around waiting for it to happen if they really are interested in the Monaco man.
