midfielder has publicly stated that he will consider his optionsĀ if he receives offers from big clubs such as Real Madrid.

The Frenchman has two and half years left on his current deal, but has been linked with moves away from the Parc des Princes as he looks for an improvement on his current terms. Arsenal manager is reportedly an admirer of the 21 year old after trying to sign the player a few years ago, and speaking to Europe 1 (translated by the Daily Mail), the French midfielder said:

“I am under contract until 2019 and I do not think I am in a rush. Honestly, I am not thinking about that. If there are offers from big clubs, that obviously demands that they are considered.”

“Clubs like Real Madrid, they are truly great clubs but, truly, the most important thing is the present and I am concentrating on what I am doing right now, that is the best thing to do.”

Rabiot has been an important member of Unai Emery’s first team this season, and despite missing out on a number of games earlier in the season due to a hamstring injury, he has managed 26 games in all competitions this campaign, scoring twice and providing three assists for his team mates. He played the full 90 minutes as thrashed 5-1 in a league match yesterday.
