Arsenal and the Spanish giants Barcelona are the two front-runners in the hunt to sign Adrien Rabiot from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, according to reports from the French sport TV channel RMC Sport, as cited by GFFN.
The France international is believed to be interested in departing from the Ligue 1 giants this summer, putting a whole host of elite clubs across the continent on red alert.
Unai Emery worked with Adrien during his stint in Paris, and if RMC Sport are to be believed, the Spaniard is eyeing a reunion with the exciting midfielder in North London.
Arsenal are well-stocked with midfield variants following their recent purchase of Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria, but it looks like Adrien could be a target for the north London club if a deal is feasible.
Unai recently insisted that the transfer business at the Emirates Stadium was finished unless a huge opportunity for his side arose.
With 23-year-old star seemingly a target, perhaps the new Gunners coach is targeting the midfielder as a surprise marquee signing.
The last season, in all competitions, Adrien Rabiot made 50 appearances, netted five goals and provided seven assists.
