Arsenal land Liverpool long-term target Adrien Rabiot has reportedly agreed to join Spanis giants Barcelona at the end of the current campaign when his contract at PSG ends.

The Italy international midfielder is able to negotiate terms with interested parties from this month after letting his Parc des Princes contract enter in the final six months.

Premier League giants Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur had all been rumoured with the 23-year-old, however, the Catalan club have always been considered the frontrunner to secure his services.

A week on from releasing a statement to deny that an agreement had been reached with the player, The Guardian claimed that the Spanish giants have now shaken hands with Rabiot on personal contract terms and a move will go through ahead of next campaign.

Adrien Rabiot is believed to have been offered a five-year contract by the Catalan giants worth around £170,000 a week, on top of a £9m fee to get the deal done.

Arsenal and Liverpool are both keen on to strengthen their squad ahead of the next season and alongside with Rabiot another PSG star Marquinhos has been their target.
