Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot is set to decide his future next week, reports Le10sport.
It's been suggested that the French club will hold a meeting with Italian outfit AS Roma, with reports indicating that the two clubs could come to an agreement over a January deal for the player.
Ultimately, though, Rabiot will make the final decision regarding his future, with Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea also interested in his services. With the Frenchman set to run out of contract at the end of this season, he could yet leave on a free next summer.
However, he may not want to have a full season in the wilderness at PSG, and may look to jump ship in the winter market. At just 19-years-old, Rabiot certainly looks set to have a bright future in the game, but it remains to be seen as to whether he will end up in England's elite division in the near future.
Arsenal in need?
The same report has in fact suggested that the Gunners attempted to land Rabiot in this past summer's transfer window. It's not surprising that Arsenal looked at the Frenchman, with many expecting them to land a tough tackling central-midfielder.
For now, though, the club will have to make do with the likes of Mathieu Flamini, Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Co. in the middle of the park.
Chelsea, meanwhile, have an array of talent in the midfield department. Blues boss Jose Mourinho has the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Ramires and Nemanja Matic at his disposal at Stamford Bridge.
Fabregas and Matic already look a dominant partnership in the middle of the park and will be hoping to play a key role in Chelsea's challenge for the Premier League title this term.
Chelsea and Arsenal will both be hoping to secure three points in England's elite division this weekend. Mourinho's side play host to Swansea City at Stamford Bridge, whilst Arsene Wenger's side take on champions Manchester City at the Emirates.
The Blues will be hoping to continue their fine start after securing three wins out of three in their opening fixtures, whilst Arsenal will be looking to hit back in style after a disappointing draw against Leicester City before the international break.
