Arsenal, Everton open talks with Juventus to sign Adrien Rabiot

Arsenal are in talks with Juventus to sign Adrien Rabiot.

Le 10 Sport says Rabiot was believed to be on Arsenal's radar during his time at Paris-Saint Germain - where he played under current Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti, who are believed to be in talks over the midfielder.

The French international joined Juve on a free transfer last summer, but has struggled to nail down a place, having made just 11 starts in Serie A this season.

The 25-year-old has been put up for sale with both Arsenal and Everton launching negotiations.

Rabiot could be paired with fellow Frenchman Matteo Guendouzi in the Arsenal midfield, while Everton will hope that the lure of working under Ancelotti again can persuade Rabiot to switch to Goodison Park.

Either way, Juventus are expected to demand at least 30million euros (£27m) for the midfielder's services.
