According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are concerned that they will lose out on Adrien Rabiot.

The PSG midfielder is out of contract with the French giants in the summer and was heavily linked with a move to North London during the January transfer window (Express).

The paper claims that Spurs chiefs are worried that the French international will opt for a move to Premier League rivals Liverpool or Barcelona and shelved talks last month after his father, Michel died just days before the window closed.

Daniel Levy has a good relationship with the Ligue 1 leaders having already previously signed Serge Aurier and Lucas Moura.

Barcelona were considered favourites to sign the France international however, they were accused of making an illegal approach and stepped back from negotiations. 

The Catalan side did confirm their interest in the player via a statement on their official site in December, though maintained innocence regarding any wrongdoing. 

There is no doubt that Rabiot will be available on a free transfer this summer, but whether Spurs can finally persuade him to make the move remains to be seen.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. What do Spurs want with a highly paid strutting peacock that neither his current club PSG or Barcelona want the services of? Not only that, his interfering mother is his agent and mouthpiece, trouble. The guy has talent but he’s isn’t worth the agro or the baggage that’ll follow him. Besides which, our spiv of a chairman wont shell out his wage demands. There is another factor, Pochettino appears afraid to manage players with bigger personalities than himself.

  2. We don’t need him. If he wanted to play with Spurs , he would have expressed interest.
    The other money clubs continue to disrespect their current roster of players. When their managers can’t get their 50 – 75 thousand pound signings to perform they spend more money and sit current players on the bench. How disrespectful is that. You players who run to the big name clubs must like being treated like slave players. Wake up idiots and have some respect for yourselves.
