If one of the latest reports is to be believed, Tottenham Hotspur are looking forward to signing Paris Saint-Germain’s midfielder Adrien Rabiot in the January transfer window. However, there would be plenty of competition for signing Rabiot, as Arsenal and Internazionale are also keen to secure the services of the 22-year-old Frenchman.
Spurs were arguably the only side who chiselled a strong competition to Chelsea for lifting the Premier League title last season, although the Blues eventually had the last laugh. Despite that, it was quite riveting as well as intriguing to see Mauricio Pochettino’s men plying their trade with so much desire and intent.
The 2017-18 campaign in the English top division has also seen them starting in a decent manner, as they have collected 8 points from their first 5 league outings. Pochettino is a kind of manager who knows how to get the best out of the resources he has at his disposal and he is doing the same this time around as well.
Spurs do have a strong squad, with the likes of Davinson Sanchez, Serge Aurier and Fernando Llorente making a move to the ranks of the white half of North London. Nonetheless, their apparent interest to sign Rabiot makes perfect sense, for he is a player of fine calibre and his entry would automatically enhance the quality of their squad.
Rabiot, despite being just 22-years-old, is someone who has garnered plenty of experience under his belt and is one of the most sought-after players in the business. He is capable enough of playing anywhere in the midfield and seamlessly breezes from the back to the front during the game and also acts as the engine room of his side.
The French international’s control on the ball as well as his positioning senses are two of his strongest suits and the manner in which he maintains a fine balance between his offensive and defensive endeavours is a treat to watch. He passes the ball in an astute manner and always intends to create ample amount of chances for his teammates.
In 5 Ligue 1 appearances this season, Rabiot has bagged 1 goal and 1 assist and has made 2.6 tackles, 1.4 interceptions and 0.8 clearances per game on an average and has thrived with an eye-catchy pass accuracy of 94.2%. The Parisians might be reluctant to let him leave Parc des Princes but considering that his contract expires in the summer of 2019 and no fresh terms have been agreed upon, the Lilywhites should tempt them by an audacious bid in January.
