Ankit is a 24-year-old, aspiring to have his voice heard through what he writes. Charismatic and frankly moral, adhering to his principles and beliefs. Out to search for a purpose in life and yet to settle on that matter.

According to a report from Mirror, Liverpool have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Adrien Rabiot from Juventus. It was mentioned that the French midfielder is keen on moving to Anfield as he has revealed his fondness for the Reds after naming Steven Gerrard as his childhood idol.

Rabiot’s Impressive Numbers For Juventus So Far This Season

Rabiot is having a brilliant season in Turin after putting in several influential performances at the centre of Juve’s midfield. The French midfield ace has found the back of the net on nine occasions and grabbed four assists in 33 matches for the Italian club during this campaign across various competitions.

The 27-year-old has been a consistent performer at the Allianz Stadium based on his average of 1.8 tackles, 0.9 interceptions, 1.2 clearances, 1.3 shots, 1.0 key passes and 0.8 dribbles per game in the Serie A. He has even been accurate when distributing possession going forward after completing 83.1% of his attempted passes in the Italian first division (stats via whoscored).

Rabiot has entered the final three months of his contract with Italian giants, who’re facing financial turmoil and look set to sanction his exit this summer.

What Will He Bring To Liverpool?

Rabiot is known for his physicality, technical ability, and versatility on the pitch. He is a well-rounded midfielder who can contribute both in attack and defence. He is an excellent reader of the game and has the ability to anticipate the opposing players’ movements, allowing him to make some crucial interceptions in his half.

The France international remains a solid tackler of the ball and can make some important interceptions for his team at the centre of the park. Rabiot is primarily a box-to-box midfielder but can also fill in as a defensive midfielder or as a left-sided wide player if his manager tells him to do so.

The French midfield ace deserves credit for scoring and creating his fair share of goals from midfield, and he can also make some powerful runs with the ball toward the opponent’s penalty area.

Rabiot is a hard-working midfielder; his physicality and work rate make him an important asset for his team in the defence. We can expect Rabiot to add more bite and steel to Jurgen Klopp‘s midfield at Anfield. He could go on to form a dominant midfield partnership with Fabinho at the Merseyside club. Hence, Klopp should definitely move in for him at the end of this season.
