Arsenal are reportedly interested in Blues target Adrien Rabiot, but the Frenchman would prefer a move to Everton instead.
According to L’Equipe (via @TheGwladysSt), the Juventus midfielder reportedly favours a move to Merseyside over Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal. The Toffees have been linked with a move for Rabiot on several occasions, including last summer whilst he was still at Paris Saint-Germain (per Le10 Sport via HITC).
Should Wayne Rooney be considered for Everton manager when he retires?
The latest reports connect Carlo Ancelotti with the 25-year-old, and the club has already made contact with the Serie A giants over a potential swoop this summer (per Gazzetta dello Sport via HITC).
Rabiot has a total of 25 goals and 17 assists throughout his career so far and tallied 227 appearances for PSG before moving to Juventus last year (via Transfermarkt).
Everton fans have responded to the update and are mostly delighted – if not in a state of shock – that the France international is looking for a move to Goodison Park. One supporter has described the update as ‘gargantuan’.
