Shocking! Reports Claim North London Club Have Agreed Deal For PSG Star.

The future of PSG’s youngster, Adrien Rabiot, has been up in the air for a while, with heated debates about his destination, as he continues to search for regular first team football outside of the Parc-des-Princes, and it appears his destination will be North London – to Tottenham according to Daily Star.

We’ve believed for long that we were in the running for the 19-year old, with other foreign obstacles, notably Roma. Tottenham have surprisingly now taken first place, according to reports, and will look to tie up a deal for him within the coming weeks. With their defeat of Chelsea, they’ve climbed above us on the League table and now want to build on it by getting one over us on the transfer market.

Rabiot had been making the headlines over the past few months with his antics on the negotiating table with the billionaire Parisiens, initially refusing to sign a deal which led to strong interest from a host of clubs including Roma and Liverpool. The dust has since settled, with the 19-year old putting pen to paper for a new bumper package that will keep him on the long-term at the Parc des Princes, effectively ending Arsenal’s eager pursuit, at least for now.

Harry Kane has appeared on all things Tottenham within the last week, and his success as a youngster against the floppy displays of the more experienced Soldado and Adebayor has rewarded Mauricio Pochettino for putting more faith in youngsters this season, even in midfield where a Bentaleb-Mason pair has been more dominant, leaving the likes of Paulinho, Capoue, Dembele and Benjamin Stambouli watching on as spectators. Perhaps the consideration is that the 19-year old Rabiot will also be of better value to him this season than those ones who have not managed to play according to his system thus far.

It could be a loan deal till the end of the season. Rabiot, though highly rated at the moment, is still more of a raw prospect for the longer term and is yet to be a mainstay under Laurent Blanc. PSG already boast an star studded midfield mechanism that consists of Thiago Motta, Marco Veratti, Blaise Matuidi, Lucas Moura and Yohan Cabaye who hardly gets a game even. The door is, therefore, open for Rabiot to still perfect his development with first team football in any other place he desires, though he has had a few runs in the league and Champions League this season.

Rabiot, compared to all Arsenal midfielders, is of a different crop. He is able to play as a defensive midfielder and can equally be pushed a little further in the box-to-box role. With a frame that is just an inch off Yaya Toure (he might still add some proteins considering he’s just 19), he will offer the Gunners a presence in the middle of the park which will not easily be shoved away. He also is a good passer of the ball, and is always ready to take the ball off players under pressure.

Are we really going to stand by and watch them take such a coveted bright star from under our noses?

    Could someone please tell me why this mediocrity at arsenal . When it comes to transfer issues arsenal is always tailing other teams . Is it that the team is just as poor not to buy established players to bring reputation to the team or simply lack of interest by the authorities of the team .
    Looking at the january transfer window arsenal is looking forward to bring in unpopular 29yr old french defender Loic Perrin from St Etienne while neighbours and rival Chelsea are planning a raid on barcelona Lionel Messi ( 164million )and french defender Varane from Real Madrid ( 20million ) .
    Man City is also doing everything to strenthen its ranks wth a move for 21 yr old German arsenal target Julian Draxler and Liverpool Bayern Munich Swiss born Xherdan Shaqiri – Fiorentina goalkeper Neto ; West Brom frontman Berahino ( 23million ) .
    Arsenal has been linked wth a move of West Ham defender Winston Reid but as usual no aproach has been made until last minutes when all other teams would have selected the cream and arsenal would be left wth the odds to grapple .
    Is it that this team lacks the financial powerto bring in big names like Messi , Ronaldo , Varane … or just a sheer lack of interest .
    Every start of the season , budget meant for players is returned for keeps while the team bleeds in ourown very eyes . The resultant consequence is that we end up grappling for 4th place or sweat out for FA cup .
    Pls Authorities that be show us supporters some respect as we do also respected you for years by simply doing our part to pay our dues and attCould someone please tell me why this mediocrity at arsenal .

    aaahaa! wenger, wenger, wenger!! oky we arsenal fans. we are tied of these younger players (stars). we need players who can stand with forexample wyne rooney and he doesn’t fear him the likes of hammels (defender) (stricker) cavani who can score in every angle but not welbeck, giroud who can’t score in every game. on the other hand alexis is not good when playing at the center forward note that.
