EPL rivals coach optimistic about their chances of signing 23-year-old Liverpool target

Arsenal coach Unai Emery is reportedly confident his club could have an edge in any transfer battle with Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool for Adrien Rabiot.

The Paris Saint-Germain star is heading towards the end of his deal at the Parc des Princes, leaving him potentially free to depart on a Bosman in the summer.

And according to the Daily Mirror, the Gunners are among the clubs keeping a close eye on the France international’s situation.

The piece also references interest from the Reds and Spurs but suggests Unai believes he could hold some advantage in the running to work with his one-time player again.

Rabiot will know the Spanish coach well after working under him for two campaigns at PSG, and it would be intriguing to see them together in the English top flight.

And while EPL duo might seem more attractive prospective sides to join right now, Arsenal would surely be able to guarantee Adrien more first-team football.

The 23-year-old star would face more competition at the Reds in particular, while Tottenham Hotspur’s future is currently uncertain as they face interest in coach Mauricio Pochettino from Manchester United, according to the Guardian and other sources in the latest months.
