Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur monitoring Juventus and France midfielder Adrien Rabiot

Tottenham Hotspur are monitoring Juventus and France midfielder Adrien Rabiot ahead of the January transfer window, as per Calciomercato (h/t The Sun).

Rabiot was close to making a move to the Premier League in the summer with Manchester United interested in him. However, the deal fell through and he stayed at the Allianz Stadium.

Now, the player has again gained the attention of clubs from England. Apart from Spurs, London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal are also interested in him.

The 27-year-old has been in good form as of late. A regular for the Old Lady, the Frenchman has played in 16 games this season in all competitions, scoring five goals in the process.

He was also on the scoresheet for his country, when he equalised the score against Australia in the World Cup earlier this week. His side went on to win the game 4-1.

Antonio Conte could do with a midfielder like the Frenchman. While Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur have been fantastic for us in the middle of the park, there is no such competition for them from the substitutes.

Yves Bissouma, Pape Matar Sarr and Oliver Skipp have not been able to provide tough competition to the preferred duo and are fringe players at the club. Skipp is still young while the former Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder seems to be taking his time to get used to Spurs’ tactics.

Having a midfielder like Rabiot could help manager Antonio Conte, especially if one of our first-team stars are unavailable for selection.

But with Chelsea and Arsenal also in the fray, they are likely to provide tough competition for us. Rabiot sees his current contract expire next summer and a decent showing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup could complicate things for us in the sense it could increase the number of suitors for him.

He has already scored for Les Bleus in Qatar, doing so in their 4-1 group stage win against Australia earlier this week.
