Arsenal have made another step in their chase for French wonderkid midfielder Adrien Rabiot, as they have contacted the representatives of the 19 year old star in an attempt to thrash out a deal for the player in the January transfer window, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
Rabiot has been consistently linked with a move to Arsenal since it emerged that he was unwilling to commit to fresh terms with Paris Saint Germain, where he has spent his entire professional career.
Additional signings at the French giants have closed off his route to the first team, and it seems as though he is keen to leave in order to play more often.
With the player out of contract next summer, PSG are interested in selling him in January, assuming they cannot get him to sign a new contract before then.
Arsenal could wait until his contract expires, but with Roma, AC Milan and Juventus sniffing around the player, they are keen to snap him up soon, and have contacted his agents with the intention of doing so.
