Arsenal & Tottenham target ready to leave PSG

Adiren Rabiot has warned Paris Saint-Germain that he is prepared to leave the club if they continue to favour new signings over him.

The 18-year-old midfielder is highly rated at Parc de Princes but has been limited to just two starts in Ligue 1 this season as big stars continue to flood in to the Qatari-owned club.

And Rabiot says he will not wait around for his opportunity in the first team and is more than happy to leave to avoid a fate similar to that of Liverpool's Mamadou Sakho.

Speaking of his importance to the team as a home-grown player he told Le Parisien: "I know it is important to the leaders and supporters. But that's not enough.

"If it is to be set aside on the day where others players are recruited in my position, it is not worth it.

"I do not want to live the way Mamadou Sakho did.

"After a while, when he realised he would not play much, he took the decision to leave and he did well.

"If a new midfielder is recruited in the winter transfer window, it will change the game for me.

"I would then think about my future."

The new will boost both Tottenham and Arsenal who have been linked with a move for Rabiot. Andres Villas-Boas is thought to be particularly keen on the defensive midfielder.

Spurs brought over £100m of talent to White Hart Lane in the summer in an attempt to fill the void left by Gareth Bale and Rabiot is seen as another potential addition to a young, talented Lilywhites team.

The Express have also accredited Arsenal with an interest in Rabiot.

Arsene Wenger has never hesitated to bring in the best of French talent during his time at Arsenal and most recently signed Auxerre youngster Yayo Sanogo in the summer.
