Free deal? Liverpool legend urges Emery to sign brilliant Man United target for Arsenal this summer
Arsenal have been told to sign PSG midfielder and Manchester United target Adrien Rabiot by Liverpool legend Steve Nicol.
With the Gunners losing Aaron Ramsey to Juventus at the end of the season, there has been a lot of transfer speculation in the media which has suggested that Emery could make a move for Rabiot, who is all set to leave PSG during the summer transfer window.
PSG have tried and failed to keep hold of the 24-year old this season, as reports in the media have suggested that Rabiot wants a contract similar to the top players at the club, which the French giants are not prepared to offer.
However, there has been reports emerged which have claimed that United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the first man to make a move for the Frenchman and has already tabled a contract offer to try and tempt him to Old Trafford.
Solskjaer is desperate to improve the squad over the course of the next few windows and reportedly believes that signing Rabiot will add a bit more creativity and quality to the midfield.
But Emery is also keen to reunite with Rabiot at Arsenal having managed the midfielder at PSG.
And Speaking on ESPN, Nicol said the 24-year-old would be ‘ideal’ for the Gunners as he nears the end of his PSG contract.
“Adrien Rabiot to the Premier League I think would be a good move for any Premier League team,” said Nicol.
“And I think there’s one team in particular who would benefit – Arsenal.
“He seems ideal for Arsenal.”
There has been a lot of transfer talk about what kind of business Emery will be doing this summer, but one thing is for certain, acquiring Rabiot would be a great bit of business, especially as he would be arriving on a free deal.
It is likely that Emery will be looking to offload a number of possible players and trying to sign a few bargains will be high on his list, especially a player of the quality of Rabiot.
So it will be very interesting to see just where he ends up over the course of the next few months
