Rabiot, though, is open to the idea of playing abroad and has dropped hint of joining Premier League club Liverpool.

"I think I would like to experience something else [outside Ligue 1]," The Mirror recently quoted Rabiot as saying. "There are a lot of very good championships, it’s also very rewarding to go elsewhere.

"I would love to play in the Premier League, not necessarily one club in particular, even though I was very fond of Liverpool when I was young."

According to a report in Calcio Mercato in July, Tottenham Hotspur were interested in signing the France international midfielder in the summer transfer window.

The Telegraph reported of Spurs’ initial interest in the PSG midfielder back in January 2015.

Former Newcastle United and West Ham United goalkeeper Shaka Hislop, who now works as a pundit for ESPN, has given his take on Rabiot's comments, pointing out that his contract with PSG runs out in June 2019 and suggesting that he is trying to get a better deal.

“Call me a cynic, but this is clearly aimed at prompting those negotiations and upping his own price,” Hislop told ESPN FC about Rabiot’s comments.
