Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot has insisted that he is enjoying life in Turin and isn’t particularly keen on moving away from the club (Tuttomercatoweb).
Rabiot was linked heavily with a move to Spurs while he was still at PSG (Calcio Mercato) but ended up moving to Juventus on a free transfer in the summer. However, things haven’t gone according to plan for the Frenchman at Turin as he has struggled to establish himself in the side.
The 24-year-old has featured just ten times in the Serie A this campaign (transfermarkt) and has failed to replicate the promise he showed during his early days with PSG.
Rabiot has been linked with a shock exit from Juve in January with Spurs’ North London rivals Arsenal reportedly keen on bringing him to the Premier League (The Times).
However, the midfielder has now seemingly quashed the rumours by reiterating his intention to stay with the Italian giants and adapt to the demands of the Serie A.
Raboit told Tuttomercatoweb: “It is true that 2019 was a very good year for me, I worked a lot, I landed at Juventus and I think this 2020 can be positive. I am physically well, I follow the job that the coach makes us and I feel good here.
“I am at the team’s disposal, the side of the field on which to play is not a problem, on the right I can re-enter on the left while on the left I get better at shooting, but it is important to be useful to the cause.
“The Italian championship is not easy, but no championship is, I am adapting as I assimilate the characteristics of the tournament. My future? It will still be here”.
Spurs Web Opinion
I have personally always considered Rabiot to be overrated as although he seems to be a well-rounded midfielder, he doesn’t excel in any one particular trait. That in combination with his alleged attitude issues means that we certainly dodged a bullet by missing out on the 24-year-old and landing Ndombele instead.
