Premier League duo Arsenal and Chelsea are set to fight it out for young French midfielder Adrien Rabiot from Paris Saint Germain, with the Express reporting that the Ligue 1 champions have given the player the green light to quit the Parc des Princes this summer.
Rabiot has reportedly been frustrated by the lack of first team opportunities afforded to him by a PSG side who have made strides to establish themselves as one of Europe’s elite clubs in the last couple of years.
Both Chelsea and Arsenal had been monitoring the situation of Rabiot and had been willing to bid as much as £10 million for the talented youngster – but the fact that PSG have told him to find a new club could mean that he is available for as little as half of that fee.
Rabiot has turned down the offer of an extended deal at the Parc des Princes and is likely to move on before the end of the transfer window – probably to either Stamford Bridge or the Emirates Stadium.
