Adrien Rabiot news

Rabiot wanted by Chelsea

Chelsea are reportedly leading the race to sign Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot during this summer's transfer window.

Rabiot has been with the Bianconeri for the past three seasons, but could be on his way out over the coming weeks.

He has just 13 months left on his contract, and Corriere dello Sport claims that he could be sold for as little as €15m.

Chelsea are deemed favourites to land his signature, and it could be due to the presence of manager Thomas Tuchel.

Tuchel knows Rabiot from his time at Paris Saint-Germain, and the German could be eyeing a reunion with him.

Rabiot is a defensive midfielder by trade. He averaged an impressive two tackles per game for Juventus last season.

He could come in as a replacement for Saul Niguez, who was far from impressive during his loan spell from Atletico.

The Spaniard will return to his parent club this summer, but there is a big possibility that he could be offloaded again.
