This really would be a huge boost for Arsenal and our Premier League title hopes, and it would lift a massive weight off the shoulders of Arsene Wenger as the Frenchman ponders a way for the Gunners to cope without our brilliant defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin.
The 24-year old Gunners is not due back for about three months and so many people expected Wenger to have no choice but to use the January transfer window to sign a replacement for Coquelin. But Arsenal fans are all too aware that the prof does not always do what people think he should, especially when it comes to spending money on transfers and even more especially half way through a season.
But surely the ideal solution of having a quality player available on loan was never going to happen was it? Amazingly enough, it just might as The Mirror is reporting that the PSG and France international Adrien Rabiot, who has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal in the past, has actually asked his club for a loan move in January to get more playing time. Even better is that he fully expects the French champions to agree.
Rabiot said, “I’ve asked the president for a loan move in January if my time on the field is insufficient. It’s something that he can’t refuse me – I know he likes me very much.
“When you train all week, you want to be on the field. Sometimes it’s not possible and it’s frustrating.
“Paris is my city. It’s great to play here. If I could impose myself here, it would be brilliant. I would be ready to play my whole career at PSG if I was a starter. I would see things differently, that’s for sure.”
The Arsenal boss must be pinching himself and I bet he has already been on the phone to PSG. They have a wealth of options in central midfield but they also see Rabiot as a star of the future and want tom keep him happy. He wants to play, we need a player, PSG keep him sweet and see him gain valuable experience.
How much more perfect could this Arsenal transfer rumour be?
