Arsenal have approached PSG's exciting young star Adrian Rabiot over a potential move to the Emirates Stadium, reports Le 10 Sport.
The midfielder is under contract at Parc des Princes until June 2015, but his future was thrown into doubt after talks over an extension ground to a hault.
A number of clubs have been alerted to the situation with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho keeping a close eye on the situation but Arsenal have since stolen a march.
Arsene Wenger has reportedly already opened talks with PSG to see whether or not the 19-year-old will be for sale this summer.
PSG are keen to keep hold of their young star, but know they cannot afford to lose such a valuable asset for free next summer, especially as they try to balance to books following sanctions from Uefa over financial fair play violations.
The French champions had offered Rabiot a four-year deal worth around €80,000-a-week but the player is more concerned with the lack of playing time he might be given in the future.
Rabiot has already struggled to cope with the influx of stars but it seems the arrival of Yohan Cabaye in January was one signing too far.
It is understood that no progress in contract talks have been made since early February and Arsenal are now looking to take advantage of the situation.
The Gunners have been linked with a move for Rabiot in the past and the player himself would no doubt appreciate interest from his compatriot, Wenger.
However, Chelsea have also been keen to snap up young talent having purchased Kurt Zouma in the January transfer window. Although no approach has been made by officials at Stamford Bridge, there could well be a response if any concrete offer comes from the Emirates Stadium.
