Roma rumour to push up price of Rabiot to Arsenal transfer?

If the number of Arsenal transfer rumours currently doing the rounds about the young Central midfielder Adrien Rabiot are anything to go by, there is certainly real interest from Arsene Wenger, despite the Frenchman refusing point blank to discuss him at the pre-match press conference.

Over the last few days, we have heard that Rabiot’s current club, French champions PSG, have slashed their asking price for the talented 19-year old, which has apparently caused Wenger to make his move. There has been a report about the central midfielder’s agent and mother arriving in London to finalise the deal, but then the latest reports, including one by Metro, suggests that the Gunners may face a late battle with Roma.

The Serie A side have apparently made a late bid to hijack the transfer and even though Rabiot is said to prefer Arsenal, the interest from the Italian club may cause PSG to up the transfer fee again. Unless they have already accepted an offer, they would certainly welcome a bidding war. However, the fact that the latest rumours come from France may mean that they are just that and have been started for the purpose of pushing up the price. We should know more very soon…

    O.T: not sure if everyone’s read özils interview.. the telegraph have an article on it. Great read and shows to me how he loves arsenal, london and why we should all get behind him.

    1. JoJo says:

      The problem with Ozil is, he doesn’t run around like a headless chicken for 90 minutes or snap the legs off opposition players. That’s what you get rated on in England and Ozil is far too subtle and intelligent for your average British hack…

      1. ArseneIsYourDaddy says:

        Agree 100%, I will say again I played against a player like Ozil. He always seemed to have time, could not get the ball off him, murdered us with killer passes. But in a straight line I could outrun him anytime.

        Ozil is not Theo ! Ozil is playing F1 football in a bump-a car world.

    2. brpowers23 says:

      I read the article and I can’t wait for Wenger to return Ozil to CAM.

      1. seancali says:

        This kid has huge talent. would welcome him, as a matter of fact would welcome anyone at the moment. Our squad needs to be improved, I just don’t understand why is wenger not doing anything. Hope we get him and Sokratis at least

  2. Twig says:

    I don’t anything about the player. Can he defend?

  3. Greg says:

    Mesut ozil as the rapper heavy D said in one of his rap some years ago i’ve got nothing but love for you bro! ” your a gunner”! Coyg!

  4. Young Gun_AFC says:

    Think its fair to say most of us don’t want ‘the rabbit’. Wanyama or someone similar as DM and sokratis (CB and DM) for me. I’d be thrilled with this transfer window!

    By the way has kj apologised yet? Rozza is a future legend!

  5. Greg says:

    To me it seems every time arsenal wants to sign a player from a particular club, they always seem to want to ” jack up the price” and hold us to ransom!

    1. davidnz says:

      The obverse is “Why does
      Arsenal want to pay Fu#k all”
      for our players”?

  6. Chima says:

    I am tired…not sure about anything anymore.

  7. davidnz says:

    Wenger going to pull a Rabiot
    out of the hat 🙂
    French and cheap so yep
    Wenger wants him.
    Now if he was also injured
    it would be a done deal already.
    Better than nothing I suppose.
    Not the big “Exciting” signing
    we are promised.
    Still time to sign some one really exciting
    like Falcao, Cavani, Reus, Carvalho,
    Kondogbia, Messi, Varane.
    or Pogba or

    Something better than nothing

  11. Hafiz Rahman says:

    we need to spend big and bring in as many quality players as we can…

  12. CraigZWE says:

    agreed Hafiz, Spend Spend Spend.

    Even if it over priced, spend on quality

  13. CraigZWE says:

    Thumbs up – you think we will get no one else
    Thumbs down – you think we might get a big player

    no thumbs – we will sign some cheap french dude

    1. JoJo says:

      Dude help me out man i’m losing it! What do I do if the player is cheap but not French!?

      1. CraigZWE says:

        hahaha, that’s the point we don’t want cheap frenvh

  14. Rock says:

    1. RSH says:

      they have Russian Mafia money though. They sell players like Mata for fun. Harsh to compare us to them.

  15. Arsenalover says:

    another midfielder ??!!
    we need pure DM and Pure ST who has ability of putting the ball in the back of the net ..
    Wilfried Bony pleazzzzzze

  16. salazar melendez says:

    esto es lo que necesitamos antes de cerrar la ventana de transferencia.
    tomar a: sokratis papasthatopoulos – alexandro cerci y willians carvalho. y punto lucharemos por todo. wenger tomar nota.

    1. gomoro says:

      English please

      1. ArseneIsYourDaddy says:

        It is the same in English or Spanish. Wenger please get Sokratis, Cerci and Carvalho, then we can fight for all trophies.
        Everyone assumes that Wenger can MAKE PSG do a deal, that Arsene can FORCE Sporting Lisbon into accepting 24 million.
        Only the banks in Lisbon that tell Sporting “take the offer or we want all our money by Wednesday”

    2. Gigi2 says:

      jajajaja buenísimo

      1. ArseneIsYourDaddy says:

        Dortmund would have made a deal for Sokratis, but drawing Arsenal in the CL group makes that near impossible. I think that deal is dead.

  17. sabelo says:

    Is it Wenger or the media that’s supposedly buying these players for us ? It appears that it’s a lot simpler to sell a player when you link him to Arsenal because clubs desperately want to have the players we have. This is exactly why we’re linked with a 1000 players transfer window and only 1 or 2 end up with us the end. Look at the Balotelli and this William Carvalho rumours for instance and you’ll see my point …

  18. funkyrith says:

    back to topic, Roma takes Manolas, now Rabiot, so they are using our scouting network or what? Now Remy also going to Chelsea, Khedira staying, Morgan staying, William bit costly, so who is left in market who you think Wenger will try bring in?

  19. Ronny331 says:

    Gustavo, kondogbia, matuidi, pogba, vidal……..

  20. CraigZWE says:

    hahaha, that’s the point we don’t want cheap frenvh

  21. Enygma says:

    Wenger should just sign Hafiz.He is world class.Other than signing French unknown players,atleast we know Hafiz!
