Over the past few weeks, the idea that Tottenham could make a move for Adrien Rabiot in the coming months has gained some pace in Italy.

The French midfielder is currently under contract with Juventus until the end of the campaign, meaning he is technically free to discuss his future with any club for an easy move.

That’s something Tottenham have been said to be keen on, and Thursday’s edition of Gazzetta dello Sport explain the player’s situation in a bit more depth.

Spurs aren’t directly mentioned, but past reports have made it clear they are keen, and the Italian newspaper to touch on the idea of a move to England’s top tier for the World Cup winner.

They recall that it is ‘no mystery’ that Rabiot has a ‘weakness for the Premier League’, and this year could be the ‘only opportunity’ for him to get an ‘important contract’ on these shores.

This is something Tottenham have been said they are capable of offering him, which could make a move to a rejuvenated Spurs enticing for the 28-year-old.

Juventus will do what they can to try and get him to extend, but if he doesn’t, they have a few names lined up as replacements, such as Mikel Merin, Lewis Ferguson, Georgiy Sudakov and Lazar Samardzic.
