It’s a common cliche that it doesn’t matter how many Arsenal transfer rumours you here, Arsene Wenger always buys an un-celebrated young Frenchman, and this season could prove no different.
The latest reports are saying that the Gunners are now targeting the 19 year-old Paris St Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who has reportedly refused to sign a new contract at the French giants.
Rabiot has definitely been impressive during his 31 game career with PSG, and has shown good promise since he played with the France U16 team. Since then he has amassed 38 games for his country up to U21 level, so it is no wonder that Wenger knows all about him.
I can see the main attraction for the Arsenal boss is that, although he is listed as a midfielder, he can also play in the back line.We all know Wenger likes to muck about with players starting positions…
I know he’s French, young and cheap (Apparently just £5m) and obviously “one for the future”, but that doesn’t mean he will be a bad buy does it?
