Liverpool Delight As Club “Holds Talks” With PSG Ace

PSG are once again top of the Ligue 1 table
PSG are once again top of the Ligue 1 table

Few players have dominated the headlines in the second half of last year as Adrien Rabiot.

The France midfielder has self-generated the rumour mill, even getting his mum involved on occasion.

Rabiot is seemingly determined to leave Paris Saint-Germain in the near future, with his contract with Les Parisiens expiring in the summer and talks of extending his stay completely dead in the water.

Barcelona have admitted interest recently although have firmly denied submitting a bid to the Ligue 1 champions for the player.

PSG are of course interested in milking some cash out of Rabiot this January transfer window instead of seeing him leave for free at the end of the season.

The player has reportedly rejected advances from Tottenham Hotspur, believing the club to be beneath him but now respected France publication L’Equipe now reports that Liverpool have held talks with Rabiot ahead of a move in the off-season when, Liverpool fans will be hoping, then will have just ended their three-decade long wait for the English title.

Liverpool are currently second in the running at 8/1, behind favourites Barca at 7/4, to acquire Rabiot’s services. The Reds are ahead of Premier League rivals Arsenal and Spurs, at 14/1 and 16/1, respectively.

The 23-year-old has made 227 for Les Parisiens and has scored 24 goals and provided 17 assists, but his temperament has been said to aggravate the PSG hierarchy. The player also rejected the opportunity to join France’s national team to journey to the World Cup after being incensed at being player by Didier Deschamps as a reserve.

A Liverpool midfield that has the depth of Fabinho, Naby Keita, Georginio Wijnaldum, and the returning Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, with support ably provided by stalwarts James Milner and skipper Jordan Henderson is certainly intimidating.
