Arsenal reignite their interest in former PSG contract rebel

Arsenal in link with Juventus and former PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

Arsenal’s struggles this season has caused them to be linked with so many players ahead of the next transfer window.

A report from Foot Mercato is claiming that the Gunners are keen on signing Juventus outcast, Adrien Rabiot.

The Frenchman joined the Italians from PSG over the summer after running down his deal at the Parc des Princes.
He has struggled for game time and reports claim that he has struggled to adapt to the demands of Maurizo Sarri.

Rabiot has fallen down the pecking order and seems to be the fifth choice midfielder at the Allianz Stadium.

Sarri has a lot of midfield players to choose from and it appears that he will not miss Rabiot should he join Arsenal.

Getting regular game time is the only goal of Rabiot now but Arsenal will struggle to land him permanently as he still has a deal at Juve until 2023.

However, the report claims that Arsenal may succeed if they pursue a loan deal for him.

Rabiot would bring an additional body to the Arsenal midfield, but his lack of game time at Juve may mean he would have to be given enough time to adapt to the pace of the Premier League.

    Mikel Arteta has told the Arsenal board he wants to sign a #6 & two central defenders in the upcoming January transfer window.

    I am falling in love with this guy even if he hasn’t coached a match for us. I see a bright future.

      That’s great. We Def need to bolster our defence. But let’s see what quality of players he gets. Hope it’s not another Sokratis or Mustafi or Luiz

    Rabiot looks like a cross between Luiz and Guendouzie.
    Three side show Bobs would be hairlairious 🙂
    Mind you Arteta would have to get a perm to fit in.
    Maybe the whole team should get curly hair or Afros 🙂

    Rabiot is soft and moody. Does not turn up against difficult oppositions/matches. Not sure why Arsenal are not chasing “Willian Arão”, he is immense, reads the game well, strong and good age.

    If we sell Xhaka in January we must try to get Rabiot on loan.

    Rabiot and Torreira at the base of the midfield would be exciting. Full of energy and defensively solid. Rabiot passing ability is equal to if not better than Xhaka.

    If we could the get Partey in the summer and even try to get Rabiot on a permanent transfer (even at the expense of Torreira) we would have an amazing midfield base.

    Partey and Rabiot would be a dream pairing. Strong, athletic, defensively solid and lots of energy.

      My only concerns with Rabiot are his attitude and mental strength. Arsenal can’t afford mistakes given their current league position, obvious weaknesses in defense and midfield, and the limited transfer budget.
      Compliments of the season and a safe, healthy and prosperous 2020 to my fellow gooner.

      1. Roshan says:

        That’s potentially why a loan move could suit both parties
