Three ideal Premier League destinations for Adrien Rabiot
It is no more a hidden secret that Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot wishes to play in the Premier League one day and there won’t be a much better time for elite Premier League clubs to grab one of the most sought-after talents in European football, given he has less than a year remaining on his current contract.
Rabiot, 23, is an excellent midfielder with top passing traits, great ball retention and the ability to play in various positions.
Let us have a look at three ideal Premier League destinations to which the French international could go and make an impact.
Manchester City have a fantastic team but Pep Guardiola must add new players to increase his squad depth. They are well stocked in the defensive and the attacking areas but lack real depth in central midfield.
Fernandinho, who was so crucial to City’s title triumph last term, is set to enter the twilight of his career and cannot put in performances with the same intensity week in and week out, while Ilkay Gundogan lacks dynamism.
Rabiot could be the player City need at the moment. The Frenchman is a dynamic midfielder and can also drop deeper to initiate attacks with his crisp passing and crossing abilities. Furthermore, he is also good at breaking the opposition’s play and could be the perfect foil for the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva.
Tottenham Hotspur needs a solid box-to-box midfielder to cover for the departure of Mousa Dembele. The 31-year-old is in the final year of his current contract and is unlikely to sign a new contract at Tottenham, as per the Express.
Dembele has struggled with his fitness throughout his career and he hasn’t been at his imperious best this season. Rabiot could be the perfect replacement for Dembele and Mauricio Pochettino must make a move for the Frenchman once the transfer window reopens.
Rabiot is a versatile player who would add solidity to Spurs’ midfield and bring vital experience to the team. At 23, he surely has his best years ahead of him.
Everton lack a central midfielder who can be creative and also be defensively solid when the team is not in possession. In that case, Rabiot fits the bill perfectly.
The Frenchman possesses the ability to play between the lines and has the creativity to unlock tightest of defences. Also, the 23-year-old’s physicality and towering frame allow him to be a threat from set-pieces, which will be an added advantage for the Toffees.
