Adrien Rabiot is reportedly nearing a move to Newcastle.
The reports in Italy suggested that Newcastle United are leading the race for Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
The France international joined Juventus from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer in July 2019. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.
He has provided two assists in 45 matches last term on all fronts.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in France. Rabiot has also left his mark at the international stage after netting one goal in 26 senior appearances for the France national team.
The midfielder has just 12 months remaining on his contract and Juventus may consider a deal in this transfer window to avoid losing him for nothing next summer.
Eddie Howe wants to sign a new midfielder and Adrien Rabiot is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. The France international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of midfielder Howe wants to target in the summer transfer window.
The Magpies are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The former Paris Saint-Germain man will add a new dimension to Newcastle United’s midfield. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “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. 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.”
