Arsenal ready to launch bid for Adrien Rabiot

Published Add your comment

Arsenal could make the first move to beat off the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea to the signature of Adrien Rabiot from Paris Saint-Germain, according to the Star on Sunday.

Rabiot is known as one of the best young talents in Ligue 1, but only started 12 league games last season because of the wealth of talent boss Laurent Blanc has at his disposal.


As things stand the 19-year-old's contract will expire in 2015 and so far he has refused to commit his future to PSG - opening up the possibility that he could be sold this summer in order to avoid letting him walk away for nothing when his deal expires.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal are all reportedly interested in the young midfielder but it is the Gunners who have stolen a march on their rivals.

Arsenal offer

The Star say that Arsenal are gearing up to make an offer for Rabiot, and having scouted him regularly will look to lure him to the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has a reputation for raiding his home country for talented youngsters, and has been tipped to do so again.

The key to Rabiot's future could be his wages; he's said to only earn around £8,000-per-week at PSG currently so if Arsenal - or Chelsea or Manchester United for that matter - make a bumper offer he could be tempted to leave the French capital. 

Manchester United blow

The news of Arsenal's interest will come as a blow to Manchester United in particular - new boss Louis van Gaal is said to be a big fan of the French youngster.

Chelsea were linked with him earlier this summer, but could now miss out.
