After admitting on French radio that he wants to play in the Premier League at some point in his career and that he was a fan of Liverpool as a youngster, speculation has been mounting in the press regarding the future of Paris Saint Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
The 22-year-old was discussing PSG’s fantastic start to the season on a French radio station on Wednesday night. When asked to discuss his future, the young midfielder admitted;
“I think I would like to experience something else (outside Ligue 1), there are a lot of very good championships, it’s also very rewarding to go elsewhere. I would love to play in the Premier League, not necessarily one club in particular, even though I was very fond of Liverpool when I was young.”
These comments have seemed to ignite much excitement amongst Liverpool supporters who, judging by their reaction on Twitter, would love to see the Frenchman, who is valued at £16.2million by Transfermarkt, join their club…
Replace Emre Can with Adrien Rabiot? Yes please. What an upgrade that'd be.

When Emre Can leaves for free next summer, Adrien Rabiot would be a great replacement for him, he sounds like he'd be open to it as well.
