Tottenham Hotspur continue to be linked with a move for Adrien Rabiot, the PSG midfielder.
The Daily Star reported on Saturday evening that Spurs are still interested in the France international after being linked with the player throughout the January transfer window.
Spurs failed to make a signing at the turn of the year, having also refused to add to their squad in the summer.
However, the aforementioned report claims that Mauricio Pochettino’s side attempted to secure a £20million deal for Rabiot in January.

A family bereavement saw the deal put on hold, however, and Spurs are now said to be worried about the prospect of the 23-year-old being poached by another interested party.
Indeed, the Daily Star claim that both Liverpool and Barcelona are also taking a keen interest in Rabiot’s situation.
And Tottenham fans are readying themselves for disappointment, with many insisting that it is unlikely Rabiot will end up in north London.
Don’t want him seems like a lot of hassle and arrogant about how good he thinks he is

It’s becoming more boring than Damiao! Time to mute the word Rabiot.

Didn’t he literally say he didn’t want to come to Spurs?

Top Transfer Target? We won’t pay fair wages to keep Eriksen and Toby, so it doesn’t make sense to lose them only to offer £150,000 a-week wages to Rabiot.

The guy seems a bit jumped up and that’s something we don’t need at spurs.

we have only been trying to sign him for 4/5 years….the gift that keeps on giving our chairman about as useful in the transfer market as a chocolate teapot…
