According to The Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur fear Liverpool will hijack their move for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot after the Spurs missed to signing the Frenchman in January transfer window
The 23-year-old Rabiot was on the verge of joining Mauricio Pochettino’s side from Parc des Princes before his father died and his transfer plans took a backseat.
Liverpool, Arsenal and Barcelona have all been linked with the France international, while Manchester United are the latest Premier League club thought to be considering a move for his signature.
The same sources also claim that Tottenham believe they are in danger of losing Rabiot to either Liverpool or Barcelona in the summer, despite coming so close to signing the French midfielder in a £20m deal in January.
Adrien Rabiot is believed to favour a move to Anfield over Wembley, and could be convinced to snub Tottenham so he can work under Jurgen Klopp.
PSG are furious to have missed out on a fee for Rabiot in January as France midfielder will now run down his contract and leave a free agent at the end of the season.
The Ligue 1 giants have even suspended Rabiot for refusing to sign a new contract deal and has not played since December for the French Champions.
Tottenham Hotspur see Rabiot as a top transfer target and were keen to end their transfer drought by signing him. Spurs have not made any new signing in the last two transfer windows and expect a battle for Rabiot at the end of the season.
