Arsenal and Juventus set to lock horns over transfer of £40.50m


New Arsenal boss Unai Emery is preparing a raid on his former side Paris Saint-Germain by making his move for £40.50 million midfielder Adrien Rabiot to London.

Emery was announced as the Gunners head-coach earlier this week and appears to be wasting no time in trying to strengthen the squad at The Emirates.

While the Spaniard immediately highlighted Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as key players he wants to build his team around, he also have his sights on new acquisitions.

And with Rabiot's missing out in Didier Deschamps plans for World Cup, the Frenchman could see a move to England as a the ideal way to force his way back into international contention.

The 23-year-old joined PSG’s youth team in 2010 following time at a number of clubs – including Manchester City – and went on to make his first-team debut in 2012.

Since then, he has registered 200 appearances for PSG, netting 20 goals whilst also spending a season on loan with Toulouse in 2012-13.

However, French news outlet L'Equipe claims that the midfielder blames PSG for his omission in France squad and would therefore be considering facing the exit door at the club.

The report also adds Serie A champions Juventus are considering a move for the player signature this summer and Arsenal could face keen competition with the Old Lady known to be top club not shy in terms of player recruitment.

Despite registering six appearances for PSG since his debut in 2016, France head-coach opted not to include him for this summer's World cup in Russia.

With Santi Cazorla officially announced to leave Arsenal and doutbs surrounding the future of Jack Wilshere, Emery will not want to be left short in central midfield and the signing of Adrien Rabiot could be a smart move for the Gunners.
