Contract expires this summer...Liverpool, Tottenham, and Arsenal are all eyeing Adrien Rabiot Transfers

Liverpool, which embarked on a major midfield reshuffle last summer, has a midfield lineup that, combined with the emergence of young players from its academy, is capable of competing even in an emergency situation with a string of injuries, and has performed well in the Premier League, domestic cup, and Europa League.

On the other hand, the possibility that Thiago Alcantara will leave the club at the end of his contract is growing, and Japanese midfielder Wataru Endo is already 31 years old, raising the possibility that the club will continue to strengthen its midfield as it did last summer. There was a lot of speculation this winter, but as a result, no one was acquired.

According to Corriere Dello Sport, Liverpool is interested in French midfielder Adrien Rabiot, whose contract with Juventus expires at the end of this season, and a battle with Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal may be in full swing.

The 28-year-old midfielder, whom Manchester United also tried to acquire in the summer of 2022, has been a mainstay for the Italian club and has started 22 games this season. In total, he has made more than 200 appearances and still has the ability to play for a top club.

His contract is coming up in June 2024, and he is currently in a position to hold talks without the club’s permission. It would not be surprising if he has exchanged information on terms and conditions with other clubs besides the three English clubs through his agent, making it easier for him to take on new challenges.

However, the likelihood of Liverpool making a move for the player at this point is close to zero. At 28 years of age, he is unlikely to be considered a competitive player from a long-term perspective, and he is not a pure defensive midfielder, so even if he is a free transfer, he would choose to invest in a younger player.

Tottenham or Manchester United could join the fray due to their current team situation, but would the French midfielder really be able to make a new career in England…?
