Arsenal and Juventus in talks over Adrien Rabiot

Published

French outlet Le10Sport report that Arsenal are in talks with Juventus over the signing of Adrien Rabiot this summer. They also confirm competition for the deal from Everton, pointing out that Carlo Ancelotti worked with the midfielder previously.

The two clubs will reportedly have to pay over €30m to land their man, which stretches the plausibility of the claims a little thin. Whilst it’s perfectly believable that Juventus would ask for that much, it’s not so likely Arsenal could afford to pay it right now.

Rabiot only joined the Serie A club last summer. He took a while to get into the team, leading to reports that he was struggling to settle. When he got into the team more regularly, the pandemic brought the season to a halt.

After that, rumours about Rabiot going on strike as a result of wage reductions at the club kickstarted the exit talk again. However, he seemingly put these reports to bed with a recent Instagram post.

True or not, controversy continues to follow Rabiot around. At this point, I wouldn’t rule out the 25-year-old moving on again this summer. I just doubt Arsenal can afford the transfer, given the risk accompanying it.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
