Arsenal and Chelsea interest has turned PSG star's head – report

Media in France are claiming that Adrien Rabiot’s attention has been caught by interest from the Premier League.

Despite all the stars compiled in Paris Saint-Germain’s squad, one of the major talents is homegrown star Adrien Rabiot.

The attacking midfielder has played more of a role in Laurent Blanc’s side this term, featuring in 17 Ligue 1 games, seven as a starter.

The 18-year-old has been a sensation at age-grade level for France, especially for the under-19 outfit, and has also featured recently for the under-21’s.

Rabiot’s contract situation at the Parc des Princes is uncertain, with the Ligue 1 leaders trying to get the teenager to extend, but the player weighing up his options.

Both Arsenal and Chelsea have been accredited with an interest in the young prodigy, with Le Parisien claiming that Rabiot’s head has been turned by the potential of moving to the Premier League.

The midfielder seems unlikely to leave PSG in January, but by the time the summer comes along it will be interesting to see where Rabiot sees his future.
