Arsenal and Spurs blow as PSG star set for move to Ligue 1 outfit

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot is set for a loan move to Marseille amid reported interest from Arsenal, report the Daily Mail.

The 20-year old has been linked with a move to both Arsenal and Tottenham extensively, though the North London rivals could be about to miss out.

Despite the fierce rivalry between the Ligue 1 sides, the PSG academy prospect could be set for a short-term switch after asking to leave.

‘I’ve asked the president for a loan move in January if my time on the field is insufficient’, blasted the French under-21 international.

‘When you train all week, you want to be on the field.’

Due to the sheer competitiveness in the race for starting places with the French giants, Rabiot has found it difficult to nail down a starting berth regularly.

The likes of Marco Verratti, Blaise Matuidi and Javier Pastore are all well in contention as manager Laurent Blanc juggles a host of top talent in the engine room.

Though linked with the Gunners, the Premier League leaders recently added Mohamed Elneny to their ranks and are due to welcome a host of key players back from injury.
