Two days ago France Football reported that Tottenham Hotspur have ‘accelerated’ their efforts to sign Paris Saint-Germain’s Adrien Rabiot and are preparing to make an offer for the midfielder.
The 23-year-old’s current deal at Parc des Princes expires in the summer and he’s made it clear he won’t renew his contract with the Ligue 1 winners.
Friday’s edition of Catalan newspaper Sport claims the north London club are ‘vigilant’ about the Frenchman’s situation, who is also on the radar of other clubs, including Barcelona.
It’s claimed the Premier League club have ‘taken the lead’ in the race to sign the contract rebel, and Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has personally held talks with the player.
The former Southampton boss explained to Rabiot that he will be a key player at Tottenham, if he decides to join them.
With six days left in the window, the English club don’t have a lot of time on their hands, if they want to sign Rabiot in this market.
PSG would look kindly on any offer, and see Tottenham again solve a transfer problem for them.
