We still think that Arsenal will sign a holding midfielder before the end of the transfer window – they certainly need one.
One of the names that has been hotly speculated upon, in relation to a move to Arsenal over the last week, has been the young PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
But the latest reports suggest that the player may not move to Arsenal after all as a fee has been agreed with Italian giants Roma for his services.
French sports media outlet L’Equippe says:
Paris Saint- Germain has reached an agreement Friday with Roma for the transfer of Adrian Rabiot
Rabiot is a really mobile and intelligent young player and it seemed that if the Arsenal manager didn’t want to spend big on a midfield acquisition then this guy would be an absolute bargain.
But reports suggest that the want away midfielder has been holding talks with Roma after a fee was agreed with Paris St Germain for in the region of €15 million
A deal has yet to be made official so perhaps there is still time for Arsenal to get something done.
Let’s take a look at the lad in action. Arsenal fans: is this the sort of signing that Wenger should be making or should he really be looking at higher profile midfield acquisitions between now and Monday?
