Newcastle United are making a move for Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
Corriere dello Sport says Newcastle are in pole position to sign Rabiot after moving ahead of Chelsea in the race for his signature.
The Magpies are looking to flex their freshly-injected financial muscles this summer and the first order of business appears to be out-bidding their Premier League rivals for a long-term target. Shrewd stuff.
Rabiot, who spent seven years at PSG before moving to Turin in 2019, has been linked with English clubs for years and may finally get his move with Newcastle keen to add experience and expertise to their squad ahead of a potentially game-changing window for them.
Rabiot could be available for as little as £13 million, so it's likely that the real bidding war will take place in the wage department.
