Tottenham’s attempts to sign Rabiot, at that time, were swatted aside, with PSG deciding to keep hold of the box to box midfielder.
However, Mauricio Pochettino’s side believe they may have more luck if they return for Rabiot now, as PSG have so many other options.
PSG are set to sign Barcelona attacker Neymar, and may need to balance the books - with Rabiot reportedly deemed expendable.
The central midfielder is said to be available for around £20 million, which would put him in Spurs’ price range.
Whether Rabiot would be a permanent starter for Tottenham is up for debate.
Spurs already have some very strong options in central midfield, but Rabiot's arrival would certainly increase the depth of Pochettino’s squad.
