Report: Arsenal set to join race to sign coveted midfielder

Arsenal are claimed to be ready to make their move to sign Adrien Rabiot from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

Luckily for our club, we won’t need to win the jackpot at to try to bring the French midfielder to the club, with him having run down his contract, and will now be available for free this summer.

Rabiot has fallen out of favour in the French capital this term, and hasn’t been selected to feature once since December. Thomas Tuchel is not the first manager to have had a falling out with the midfielder however, and he is continually linked with transfers every time the windows come around.

Latest claims are that the 24 year-old is angry with his mother/agent, after a move to Barcelona broke down, and he is said to be looking at a change. It remains to be seen whether his mother’s involvement in negotiations have been a sour point for the midfielder in Paris also, but whatever happens this summer, his future looks away from Ligue 1 regardless.

Atletico Madrid, Manchester United, Liverpool, Spurs and many others are also named amongst potential suitors for his signature, and it is believed that Arsenal winning on Wednesday could well prove key in trying to lure him to the Emirates.

The Gunners will have to beat Chelsea in the Europa League final this week to earn themselves England’s fifth Champions League place for next season, but a loss will not only see our side miss out on the elite European competition, but also leave England with only four entries.

Would Rabiot be a key player in the Arsenal midfield? Could we beat our rivals to his signature? Will he only move to a club with Champions League football?
