Arsenal back in Rabiot lead

There are reports Arsenal have overtaken Roma to lead the race for PSG starlet Adrien Rabiot, though Juventus and Inter are there too.

Roma had seemed to be the hot favourites for the midfielder, whose contract expires at the end of the season.

The Giallorossi had reportedly agreed terms with Rabiot’s mother, but according to Sky Sport Italia that is no longer the case.

Rabiot’s family wants bigger wages, which Roma are not prepared to offer after already discussing personal terms over the summer.

Transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio claims Arsenal got wind of this change and have dived in with a huge contract for the 19-year-old.

Roma’s failed deal also opens the door for Juventus and Inter to resume their interest.

If Paris Saint-Germain cannot agree a sale in January, then the player will be a free agent in June.

Rabiot was left off the PSG Champions League squad list to make it easier to sell him mid-season.
