The transfer window has only just slammed shut and yet there are already rumours surfacing involving two of England’s biggest clubs, leaving fans in the Football Transfer Tavern longing for it to open again.
According to the Daily Express, both Arsenal and Chelsea will battle it out for French ace Adrien Rabiot after he was left out of Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League squad.
The 19-year-old only has a year left on his contract and it has been confirmed that the teenager will leave after turning down a number of contract offers.
It was believed that he would make way this summer, however a deal between the player and potential suitors could not be agreed.
Earlier in the week, PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi admitted that the player has decided to leave the Parc Des Princes club.
He said: “We talked about Rabiot with Roma and other clubs. But we did not come to any agreement. I love the kid – I think he’s a great player and I want him to stay.
“I have tried to get him to renew his contract, but without success. He wants to leave.”
Arsenal and Chelsea fans. How much do you think Rabiot is asking for? It must be a fortune if the French side are refusing to pay. Let us know your thoughts below.
