Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push this season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best to achieve his target.
Arsenal are on the verge of completing the signing of Paris Saint Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot, according to the Metro.
The Gunners have been linked with a move to sign at least midfielder since suffering long term injuries to Francis Coquelin and Santi Carzola and a host of names have been linked with a switch to the Emirates
The Gunners began following PSG’s Rabiot since the 20 year old revealed he is keen on a move away from Paris in order to secure regular football and the North London club are now set to snap up the midfielder.
Italian Publication Ita Sport Press via the Metro claims Arsenal are close to signing the midfielder.
The Gunners have reportedly held talks with the player’s agent who happens to be his mother. The report claims the player’s agent Veronique Rabiot flew in to London to hold talks with Wenger and the Gunners are firmly interested in the 20 year old.
It has also been reported that the Gunners are set to meet PSG’s £15m ($75M ) asking price for the midfielder as Wenger rates him so high.
Rabiot is highly rated in Paris but finds himself behind Marco Verratti, Thiago Motta and Blaise Matuidi in Laurent Blanc’s pecking order.
