Liverpool eye summer move for French international thriving in Serie A
Liverpool eye a move for Juventus star Adrien Rabiot
As Liverpool prepare for the upcoming summer transfer window, they have their sights set on signing Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot. The 27-year-old Frenchman is set to become a free agent at the end of the season (Transfermarkt). He is also currently being sought after by top clubs such as Manchester City and Manchester United. However, it appears that Liverpool are also keen to add him to their squad.
According to a report by Football Insider via Liverpool Echo, the Merseysiders are among the front runners in the race for Rabiot’s signature. Jurgen Klopp’s side needs a central midfielder, and Rabiot could potentially fill that void.
The French international has proven to be a versatile player, capable of playing in several positions in midfield, including as a deep-lying playmaker, a box-to-box midfielder, or even as an attacking midfielder.
Rabiot’s potential arrival at Anfield would also add some much-needed depth to Liverpool’s midfield, which has seen itself stretched thin this season due to injuries to key players. With the likes of Thiago Alcantara and Naby Keita having suffered from injuries in recent months, Rabiot’s presence could provide Klopp with more options in midfield, particularly in the latter stages of the Champions League.
Rabiot to the Reds?
However, there is a catch. Rabiot is reportedly seeking a “huge contract” to compensate for his free-agent status. While Liverpool are a club that is willing to spend money on top talent, they will need to weigh up whether Rabiot’s salary demands fit within their financial structure.
Despite this potential hurdle, it’s clear that Rabiot would be a valuable addition to Liverpool’s squad. His experience playing for Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain, as well as his international experience with France, would make him a valuable asset to Klopp’s team. However, the player comes with his fair share of controversy, which the Reds could certainly look to avoid.
The Frenchman has the potential to be a key player for Liverpool and could help the club build on its recent successes in the Premier League and the Champions League. He is a talented and versatile midfielder who could add some much-needed depth to Liverpool’s squad.
While his salary demands may be high, if Liverpool can sign him, it could prove to be a great move for the club but the Reds should obviously be wary of the off-field drama Rabiot carries before approaching him.
