Newcastle United continue to be heavily linked to multiple players since Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund [PIF] completed the purchase of the English club last month.

Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot is among the reported targets and earlier this month, we relayed news from Italy the Magpies are ‘showing interest’ in the midfielder.

Massimiliano Allegri returned to the Turin club in the summer and the manager thought he could bet ‘strongly’ on the 26-year-old this season.

That’s according to Calciomercato, who add that Allegri isn’t convinced with the former Paris Saint-Germain man and therefore, ‘he can leave’.

It’s said the France international ‘almost always plays badly’ and doesn’t seem to have anything to offer to the Old Lady.

This, and Allegri opening the door for the player to leave the club, has convinced the Serie A side to ‘push him away’. Juve will ‘evaluate offers’ in January and ‘indeed they will look for them’ in the next market.

Calciomercato states the Italian giants view Newcastle as a ‘solution’ for Rabiot and even say the ‘channel’ has ‘already opened’ with the Tyneside club for his potential transfer in January.

The report gives a feeling Juventus are keen to get rid of Rabiot, which is why they see the Magpies as a ‘solution’ for the Frenchman.
