Juventus coach Sarri battling to keep Arsenal, Spurs target Rabiot

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri doesn't want to lose Arsenal target Adrien Rabiot.

With Arsenal circling, the midfielder is reportedly far from convinced of his place in Juventus' future, after his disappointing start to the campaign, says the Daily Express.

But, Sarri has categorically ruled out a January move for Rabiot.

The manager insisted that he won't be leaving Turin on a permanent deal, or even as part of a loan deal.

Juventus are planning to keep the midfielder for the second half of the season, which Sarri believes is the most important one.

Rabiot has already been linked with a move to the Premier League this season, however.

It was reported that Juventus were lining up a swap deal with Tottenham for Rabiot, which would see Christian Eriksen heading the other way.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are expected to be busy in the January transfer market, after the arrival of Arteta.
