Almost Done: Agent In London, Arsenal Close To Completing 2nd January Signing

Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on bolstering his side in the January transfer window for the second half of the 2015/2016 season.

Arsenal are reported to have begun talks over the possibility of making their second January signing for Paris St. Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot, according to reports. The Gunners are said to be preparing a £15 Million bid for the 20-year-old midfielder.

Rabiot is a transfer target for fellow Premier League side, Tottenham Hotspurs but it seems like its Arsenal that has moved ahead in securing the players signature. The talented youngster is seeking a move away from the French Capital club in a bid to get more playing time under his belt and boost his chances of being included in the French squad for the European Championship billed to take place in the summer.

Latest report indicates that Rabiot’s mother cum agent; Veronique is said to be in London discussing personal terms with the Gunners, according to reports from the Daily Star. Italian star midfielder, Marco Verratti is the reason why Rabiot is frozen out most times from the firs team, although he possesses great technical ability for a defensive midfielder and should be a better addition to the Gunners than the relatively unknown Mohamed Elneny who is likely to complete his move from Basel of Switzerland in the coming days.
