Tottenham’s interest in Adrien Rabiot is nothing new.
Way back before he became a “problem” for Paris Saint-Germain and the player we know today, currently contracted to Juventus, the Frenchman caught the eye of Spurs scouts, and rumours ensued.
Yearly links to the Premier League circulated, and we thought his move to Italy would put an end to them, but to no avail.
Moving on a free to Turin after his contract in Paris came to an end, the 24-year-old was meant to relaunch his career in Italy, but that has yet to be the case.
Featuring just five times under Maurizio Sarri, the Frenchman is really struggling, which has led to talk of a move to Tottenham reappear once more.
Calciomercato in Italy pushed it on Sunday evening, claiming that Spurs are ‘seriously thinking’ about Rabiot.
As to how they could get him, the ‘idea, nothing more, for now’ is of a ‘possible operation that could also involve Christian Eriksen’.
They explain that before any of this could happen, however, both Rabiot and his mother, Véronique, would need to be convinced, but Calciomercato state Juventus ‘aren’t closing the exit of a player who arrived just a few months ago’.
Brutal, but if it doesn’t work with Sarri, it’s easier to cash in on a free transfer than replace a newly appointed manager who has done well so far.
