The Gunners were given permission to speak to exciting midfielder Rabiot over the weekend, with PSG resigned to letting him go after he turned down a new contract.
And now reports coming from France are claiming that a bid of £5.6 million has been accepted by the Ligue 1 champions and that the player will now speak with the Gunners with the view of completing a move.
It is believed that Serie A side Roma made a late move to poach him from under Arsenal’s nose, but Arsene Wenger has seen off their challenge by offering him a bumper deal in a bid to push the move through.
The 19-year-old’s current contract runs out at the end of the season and he has made no secret of his desire to play in England one day.
