French maestro Rabiot opens up on possible Arsenal move after early Arteta approach
Arsenal target Adrien Rabiot insists he will not be leaving Juventus in January.
After months and months and months of speculation in the media, the Gunners finally decided to ditch the idea that Unai Emery is the man to lead the club into a new era and finally decided to let the Spaniard leave just a few weeks ago.
And that has led to the appointment of Arteta, the club legend that has been working next to the best boss in the game right now, Pep Guardiola, who is not happy about losing his right-hand man to the Gunners this week.
The window, Arteta’s first as Arsenal boss, is now open, and big changes are expected to the squad he inherited from Unai Emery, with a number of top players now linked with a move to the Emirates.
Rabiot is yet to nail down a regular place in Juventus’ side, but managed back-to-back 90 minutes in Serie A for the first time this season in wins over Udinese and Sampdoria.
And recent reports in the media had suggested that the Arsenal have approached the Italian giants about a possible deal this month, with Arteta a massive fan of the French World Cup winner.
But despite a difficult first six months at the Italian, Rabiot has come out and responded to rumours that he could leave the club by the end of the January transfer window.
Following Juve’s match with Cagliari, Rabiot told reporters on the TMW website: “Yes, I will stay with Juventus for sure. There is no problem.
“I feel the confidence of the club and of coach Sarri. 2019 was not easy for me, I came to Juve after a long time without playing.
“I’m looking to adapt to a new league, a new environment and a new coach. I hope 2020 will be better for me and be able to help Juventus by exploiting my full potential.”
