Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on signing the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder.
According to a report from Spanish publication Sport, Tottenham are prepared to make an offer for PSG ace Adrien Rabiot this month, as Barcelona continue to dither in their pursuit of the Frenchman.
The 23-year-old's current deal with the Ligue 1 outfit is set to expire in the summer, so he will be available on a free transfer at the end of the season.
It seems as though Spurs are not prepared to wait until then, however.
Spanish media outlet Sport claims that Tottenham are ready to offer Rabiot a contract in the hope of securing his signature this month.
They suggest that the north London outfit are prepared to offer PSG around €10 million (£9 million), as well as giving Rabiot a five-year contract.
Tottenham will face competition for the France international, however, with Barcelona obviously still keen and German giants Bayern Munich thought to be monitoring developments.
Rabiot would be an exceptional signing for Spurs, and with Mousa Dembele nearing an exit, the 23-year-old would be the perfect long-term successor to the Belgian's throne.
