Liverpool are now being seen as a ‘plausible’ option for Adrien Rabiot as he now focuses on his future after Euro 2024.

Calciomercato cover the player today and say Liverpool are very much a club to be considered as Rabiot works out what comes next.

They explain that Rabiot is, at this moment in time at least, a free agent, after his contract with Juventus came to an end on June 30th.

He had initially wanted to resolve his future before the start of Euro 2024 but delayed that and instead decided to focus on the tournament with France.

They’ve now been knocked out by Spain and so attention turns back to his club career and working out his next steps. For all intents and purposes, he is unemployed, although ‘he won’t remain so for long.’

CM say there are three ‘plausible’ new destinations for him at this moment in time, Real Madrid to replace Toni Kroos, or the new projects at Liverpool and Bayern Munich under Arne Slot and Vincent Kompany respectively.

AC Milan had held several meetings with his mother Veronique, who acts as his agent, to examine the details of a possible move but they’re more focused on Youssouf Fofana, who would be cheaper in terms of wages.

There is the possibility of a renewal with Juventus too, but they don’t intend to raise their offer of €7-8m for two years and are rebuilding their midfield with Douglas Luiz, Khéphren Thuram and potentially Teeun Koopmeiners too.

If there is to be a renewal, the player and his mother ‘will have to take a step back’ and potentially accept lower wages that what they’ve currently asked for.

That gives Liverpool an opportunity to move in, with them now seen as a plausible option for the Frenchman after several reports over the last few weeks presented them as surprise suitors for his signature.
