Arsenal leading the race to sign French midfielder ‘that will improve the squad’
Fresh reports have claimed that Arsenal are leading the chase to sign Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot
The Frenchman has really struggled for game time this season at Juventus, and he wants more guaranteed football at this stage of his career as he is not getting any younger
Despite being one of the most gifted central midfielders in the game – Rabiot has never really adapted to Italian football like many had hoped – and Juventus are also keen to make sure that they get his massive £7M a season wages off the books
He is out of contract at the end of the season – and with Arsenal looking to add some more quality to the side – Rabiot is a player that is reportedly on the agenda
Now – According to reports in CalcioMercatoWeb, the Gunners are leading the chase to sign the Frenchman having been convinced by his excellent displays at the World Cup in Qatar.
It is suggested that Arsenal would also be willing to wait and secure the 27-year-old on a free transfer in just a matter of months time.
And if you believe the words of reporter Iomie Stanley – he would now be open to a move to the Emirates because of Arteta – he told icfootballnews: ‘Rabiot is a brilliantly gifted midfielder that just hasn’t adapted to Italian football – his career has not gone how many people had hoped
‘A few seasons ago he would have not even thought about joining the Gunners because they were not competing for trophies or playing Champions League football.
‘But while they still have some time before they get that – the future i bright under Arteta.
‘This Gunners side is very young and has alot of potential – so that is something that could tempt Rabiot – who is keen to reignite his career.’
