Who wants him? TOTTENHAM
Who says? Buzz Sport in France
What do they say?
They reckon that there could be as many as 6 offers for the excellent French U21 star in January, wth Tottenham, Arsenal and Newcastle interested from The Premier League.
With Arsenal also regularly linked with a move for the technically excellent young Frenchman Tottenham may have it all to do to get this deal over the line.
On the flip side, with everyone fit he may be warming the bench at Arsenal. So he may see Tottenham as a club with more opportunity for playing time. This is, after all, the main reason why he wants to leave PSG.
At 20 years of age he fits the profile for the sort of player Tottenham are going for under Mauricio Pochettino. They have the youngest team in The Premier League and there is a certain fearlessness about Spurs as a consequence.
Rabiot would get a game for most European sides and played 33 times last season for the French side. He has also turned out 11 times in this campaign for the French giants. But he clearly feels that he needs to be playing every week.
We think that he would be a excellent signing for Tottenham.
Likelihood? 6/10 – competition will be hot for his signature.
Shall we see his highlights? Why The Dickens Not?
Your shout: Tottenham fans, do you think he’s worth a punt?
