Arsenal target Adrien Rabiot has revealed his desire to leave Paris Saint-Germain in the January window, Daily Star reports.
The 20-year-old has found it very hard to break into the first team given that he is seen as back up to midfield pair Blaise Matuidi and Marco Verratti.
He admitted that he told the club’s president to allow him to make a loan move elsewhere due to his lack of playing time at the Parc des Princes.
“I’ve asked the president for a loan move in January if my time on the field is insufficient,” he said.
“It’s something that he can’t refuse me – I know he likes me very much. When you train all week, you want to be on the field. Sometimes it’s not possible and it’s frustrating.”
The Gunners could now be alerted by his potential availability given that they were keen on his services and are in need of more reinforcements due to their current injury crisis.
Despite Rabiot’s desire to leave, it is unlikely that manager Arsene Wenger can sign him on a permanent basis because he is hoping to earn himself a first team role with PSG heading into the future.
He only managed to register eight starts from a possible 17 matches so far this term and would be the perfect January signing for Wenger given injuries to both Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin.
