Tottenham Hotspur have had a long-running interest in Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

Rabiot, whose current contract with the French champions comes to an end in the summer, has opted not to sign an extension with the Parisians and has publically indicated his desire to leave the club.

It was thought however that Barcelona would be able to secure the 23-year-old services after it was suggested that the club were discussing personal terms with the Frenchman.

However, Spanish publication Sport report that Tottenham are ready to swoop in as Barcelona are dithering in their pursuit to sign the player.

Tottenham are apparently willing to offer PSG £9m for the player as well as a 5-year contract for Rabiot. The report claims that German giants Bayern Munich are also keen on securing the midfielder’s services.

Tottenham, of course, have a good relationship with PSG having recently secured the services of Lucas Moura and Serge Aurier from the club. Rabiot would be a perfect replacement for Mousa Dembele who is rumoured to be close to a transfer to Chinese club Beijing Guoan.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Selling Dembele and bringing in Rabiot for almost the equivalent amount would be an unbelievable deal.
    Personally I’m hoping this January window to see just Rabiot and Josh Maja signed and then Dembele, N’Koudou, and one of Llorente or Janssen leave assuming Janssen may be given a chance.
    Then Eriksen and Alderweireld signing new long-term contracts and that would be perfect.

    Rabiot is an unbelievable player but we’ll have to break our wage structure to sign him, so hopefully we do and then Eriksen and Toby sign on too. Maja I personally think ticks so so many boxes for us too, strong, young, an eye for goal, good in the air and homegrown get him signed up and give him a few minutes here and there and he could really thrive. Janssen once he’s proven his fitness if he gets his head down and really gives it everything could rediscover his (Holland) form in the Premier League and we’d have ample Kane back up
