Long-term Liverpool target Adrien Rabiot has been in talks with Juventus over the past few weeks.

According to the Express, the Reds have been monitoring the PSG ace since January, and he will be available on a free transfer on July 1st, when his contract with the Ligue 1 giants expires.

 

The 24-year-old France international is one of the finest deep-lying midfield players in the game, and whoever wins the race for his signature will secure themselves a real bargain.

And Liverpool will be hoping that they can convince the self-confessed Reds fan (RMC) into moving to Anfield.

Rabiot told Corriere dello Sport that he has been in talks with Juventus, however:

"I like Italy very much, staying here is wonderful, you rest and you recuperate. A demanding season awaits me. I have spoken with Juventus, but we can't say anything. I still don't know where I will go. It is a great club where every good player would like to play."

It seems as though nothing has been agreed yet though, so the Merseyside outfit should not give up hope of signing the Frenchman.

He possesses all of the attributes that Liverpool need in the middle of the park, and Jurgen Klopp should be doing everything within his power to bring the silky star to Anfield.
