Talks Held As Arsenal Set To Complete Fantastic 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.

The Gunners have been strongly linked to the midfielder who publicly announced that he is seeking a move away from the French Champions.

Adrien Rabiot’s agent was in London to hold crunch talks with Arsene Wenger, according to reports. The French youngster has signaled his intention to leave the Parc des Princes in search of more playing times in other to make the French squad for the European Championships in the summer.

Latest reports indicates that Veronique Rabiot; who is the mother and agent of Adrien Rabiot met with the Gunners and a deal is on the cards for the player to make a switch to the Emirates this month. Paris St. Germain would love to keep hold of the 20 year old but the craving for more playing time in order to make the French team for the European Championship in the summer is too strong for Rabiot.

Italian international; Marco Verratti is the reason why Rabiot is frozen out most times from the firs team and there is no indication that Rabiot would be displacing the talented Italian anytime soon, so a move away seem to be his best option if he is to realize his dream of playing for France in the summer championship.
