Arsenal set to miss out signing of 25-year-old Serie A star

By | July 12, 2020

Everton are reportedly favourites to secure services of Juventus midfield maestro Adrien Rabiot.

Arsenal have also previously been credited with an interest for the French midfielder, while Man United have been also strongly linked with a move for the former PSG star who turned down the chance to make the switch to Old Trafford earlier last summer preferring to make a switch Italian champions.

The Frenchman has played 24 games for Maurizio Sarri’s side since arriving from Ligue 1 giants.

The 25-year-old has only played 17 Serie A games during the 2019-20 campaign and 11 of them have been in the starting XI, though, and the Old Lady are allegedly keen to make a move him on during the upcoming summer transfer window.

However, according to Tuttosport, the Merseyside Blues are leading the race for Frenchman due to the presence of manager Carlo Ancelotti, who handed the six-time France international his debut at PSG.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly had a £16m bid for Arsenal transfer target and Flamengo playmaker Gerson turned down by the Brazilian outfit.

The 23-year-old, who has made a return to his native Brazil last summer following an underwhelming stint at Serie A giants, AS Roma, has amassed four goals from 43 games across all competitions for the Brasileirao champions.

Arsenal are reportedly keeping tabs on Gerson, and Spurs are believed to have made contact with Flamengo regarding over a potential move in the summer.
