Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in winter, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
It is probably football’s worst kept secret that Arsenal are looking to recruit a midfielder or two this winter. The Gunners midfield has been severely hit by several injuries and manager Arsene Wenger is believed to be working on new signings. Very top of the list seems to be Paris Saint-Germain midfield sensation Adrien Rabiot.
Daily Star had previously reported that Arsenal had opened initial talks of a £15million move with Paris Saint-Germain about the transfer. Those talks seem to have been fruitful as the The Express now reports that the player’s mother and agent Veronique is in London discussing personal terms with the Gunners.
The highly rated youngster is reported to be fed up with life in Paris as Manager Laurent Blanc has failed to deliver on his promise of more game time in the summer.
PSG are reluctant to sanction the sale of a player who is regarded as one of the finest talents presently in World football, but the player continues to force his way out of the exit door in order to gain more playing that could see him force his way into the France squad for the upcoming Euro championship.
Wenger is believed to be attracted to the youngster who possesses great technical ability for a defensively-minded player. His arrival would not only further boost the mood around the Emirates but will also aid the Gunners title bid, he is however cup tied for the Champions league and wouldn’t feature against Barcelona having already represented PSG in the group stages.
