Juventus join race to sign Adrien Rabiot

Published Add your comment

Juventus have joined Chelsea and Arsenal in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot this summer.

TalkSPORT reports how the France U21 international has been heavily linked with a move away from Parc des Princes after refusing to sign a contract extension with the Ligue 1 champions.

Rabiot has less than 12 months to run on his current deal and could now leave PSG in a cut-price transfer before the close of the window.

According to the London Metro earlier this month, the 19-year-old is valued at around £7 million - a modest fee for an exciting player heralded by many as one of the brightest young talents in Europe at the moment.

Chelsea interest

His fine form in France has attracted admiring glances from Blues boss Jose Mourinho, who has been weighing up an attempt to lure the teenager to Stamford Bridge ahead of the 2014/15 campaign.

Arsene Wenger has also been mooted as a potential suitor, with Arsenal known to be in the market for midfield reinforcements at the Emirates Stadium this summer.

The Gunners have been uncharacteristically busy in the past few weeks, strengthening their squad with the additions of Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona, Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle United, David Ospina from Nice and Calum Chambers from Southampton.

Juventus interest

However, both Arsenal and Chelsea's respective hopes of luring Rabiot to the Premier League have been dealt a blow by news that Serie 'A' champions Juventus are keen to take him to Turin.

Interest in the player is even more fierce in Italy, with AS Roma and Inter Milan both watching Rabiot's situation closely, but Massimiliano Allegri's remains the frontrunner for his signature.

Player-plus-cash deal

Swiss defender Stephan Lichtsteiner could also be thrown in as part of the deal, but PSG manager Laurent Blanc is believed to favour a cash-only offer.

Rabiot came through the youth ranks in Paris and made 12 Ligue 1 stars for his current club last term, but looks set to embark on a new challenge abroad after deciding that his long-term future would be better served away from the French capital where competition for midfield places is at an all-time high.
