According to a report from CalcioMercatoWeb, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are among the favourites to sign Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot in the summer when his contract expires with the Italian side.
Rabiot has been with Juventus since joining from PSG in the summer of 2019 on a free transfer. However, it now appears the Frenchman will leave the club in the same manner in which he arrived – for nothing.
With his current deal set to end in the summer, it is thought Juventus are keen to keep Rabiot but are struggling to come to an agreement (CalcioMercatoWeb).
The 27-year-old is having a pretty impressive season for the Turin giants, with six goals and two assists in 27 appearances (Transfermarkt). He has scored half of his 12 Juventus goals in this season alone, but his time at the club looks to be numbered now.
It was reported last week that Tottenham were one of three Premier League clubs considering a move for Rabiot in the summer, along with Arsenal and Liverpool (TuttoMercatoWeb).
Now, the latest from Italy suggests Manchester United are also keen on snapping up the French international on a free transfer.
The report claims one of the four English teams are best placed to sign Rabiot, despite interest from other Premier League and European teams.
Tottenham are likely to be looking at adding to their central midfield options after the long-term injury to Rodrigo Bentancur.
Spurs Web Opinion
I’ve never quite been convinced on the idea of signing Adrien Rabiot. He’s an experienced and accomplished player and for a free transfer, it wouldn’t be a bad acquisition, but I believe there are better options out there if we’re willing to spend a bit of money.
Rabiot feels like the kind of player Manchester United would go for if you ask me. I can see him ending up at Old Trafford in the summer.
