The French midfielder is thought to be valued at around £10 million after an impressive emergence from the youth set-up into the first-team.
Earlier in the month, Rabiot did express his desire to obtain more game time and if he couldn’t get it at PSG then he would consider a move away from the Parc des Princes when the January transfer window opens.
‘He’s 20 years old, plays regularly in a big team. He’s come through the youth academy — the club has given him a lot. I’ll never accept that he considers himself more important than the club.
‘The club will always be more important than any player. He’s a big talent. My dream is that he might become captain of PSG one day. But he has to respect the club, the coach and his teammates.
‘He’s part of the PSG family and he should respect it. He understood the message. He’ll be there at 100 per cent in January.’
Arsenal are supposedly ready to test the waters this January by making a £10 million move for the Frenchman, but previous reports have also suggested a loan move is also an option.
And on hearing Al-Khelaifi’s latest comments on Rabiot’s immediate future, it seems the Gunners best option of acquiring him this winter is on an end-of-season loan deal, rather than a permanent one.
