As per France Football (via Get French Football News), Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti remains interested in signing Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
The Toffees were eager to capture the £28.8m-valued France international (Transfermarkt) last year (Football Italia via L’Equipe), but he ended up staying in Italy. So far this campaign, he has made 28 appearances in all competitions for the Old Lady (Transfermarkt), but at the age of 25, he has perhaps still not hit the heights many expected him to.
Rabiot started out in his homeland with Paris Saint-Germain, and it was actually Ancelotti who gave him his first regular chances in the professional game – he played nine times under the Italian in the early days of his career. Clearly a fan, the Italian appears to be keen to take Rabiot to Merseyside, and has even told the Everton board that they should be willing to spend more than €3om (£26.2m) on the player.

The Toffees supporters are delighted by these links, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Rabiot link below
“I haven’t seen him play in years. Will still take him over the Gomes/Gylfi pairing so long as he has some pace”
“just what we need”
“Quality. He would get the ball in quick to James and Richarlison. Need the midfield quickening up”
“People saying his attitude is bad. If Carlo wants him, then surely he sees something in him! And let’s be honest, surely he’s better than Sigurdsson and Gomes!”
