Juve identify Barca and Milan target as potential January signing


Adrien Rabiot news

According to what has been reported by Tuttosport today, via CalcioMercato, Juventus have identified Paris Saint-Germain’s French midfielder Adrien Rabiot as a potential January signing, as the club look for ways to boost the strength of their midfield line.

Rabiot has been a target of Arsenal, Barcelona, AC Milan and Tottenham Hotspur in the past few months and has a contract expiring next summer with PSG.  

If PSG cannot tie their midfield star to a new deal, they could choose to let him go for a discount in January; rather than be faced with losing a top player on a free transfer at the end of his contract. 

Tuttosport suggest that Rabiot is Juventus’ main goal for January, as the club will likely not be able to pursue the higher-cost options of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Paul Pogba.  

Rabiot, like Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey, is one of the bargain midfielders that could be available in the summer on a free; causing all sorts of interest to be stirred up from across Europe.

Clubs like Juve and Milan will see these opportunities as a chance to get a world class player without having to spend the big bucks that the English clubs, Spanish clubs and PSG throw around in today’s market.
