It is becoming a regular occurrence that the footballing world is blessed with upcoming young talents, and 19-year-old Adrien Rabiot is the latest wonderkid to be added to that ever growing list according to reports.

The creative midfielder is well known for his slick skills and has not only attracted the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, but has also broken into France's U21 side with three appearances to his name.

Drivers seat

It is Spurs that are in the drivers seat to land the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder, who with the presence of Yohan Cabaye, Blaise Matuidi and Marco Verratti, is facing an uphill battle to feature on a regular basis for the Ligue 1 champions.

But his demands may lead him to another club. Despite bids being rejected from Liverpool, Arsenal and Roma, PSG are yet to respond to a loan offer from Spurs as Mauricio Pochettino looks to bolster his midfield options.


Again, the midfield area is a fully accommodated area at White Hart Lane. Christian Eriksen, Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason are common assets while Etienne Capoue and Moussa Dembele wait impatiently for a chance on the bench.

So if a move was to go through to North London for Rabiot, his playing opportunities with the Premier League side would be just as limited as the current circumstances he is undergoing in the French capital.


Never the less, L'Equipe are reporting that Pochettino is keen to prize the 19-year-old to Spurs despite an overcrowded midfield as the Argentine is looking to offload both Capoue and Dembele.

Still at the ripe age of 19, the wonderkid is not short on experience with already 34 appearances under Laurent Blanc on top of a loan spell with Toulouse in 2013 which saw him feature 13 times.
