Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have both reportedly taken concrete steps towards sealing the transfer of Juventus central midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
However, it seems like Everton are leading the pursue ofthe Frenchman’s signature at the moment, according to Corriere dello Sport, as translated by Sport Witness.
Adrien Rabiot has long been considered one of the most excellent midfield players in Europe after shining in his time at previous club PSG though he’s been slow to get going at Juventus.
Notwithstanding only joining the club on a free transfer in the summer, Adrien Rabiot could now be on his way out of Turin as Premier League clubs hover for his signature.
The Gunners could definitely do with Rabiot as an upgrade on unconvincing players like Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka, but the report shown in the screen-grab below suggests it’s Everton making the most significant push to snap him up this January.
That would be quite a statement signing by the Toffees, who may now be able to attract more prominent names since the new managerial appointment of Carlo Ancelotti.
The Italian tactician has worked with some of the biggest names in world football over the last couple of decades, and he’d do well to strengthen his Everton squad with a player of Adrien Rabiot’s quality.
