Tottenham and Arsenal target desperate for January exit from French giants

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrian Rabiot has told president Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he wants to go out on loan in Janaury, the Mail reports.

The 20 year-old midfielder made the step-up to the PSG first-team back in August 2012, but has found opportunities limited in recent seasons.

Rabiot has been linked with moves to the Premier League, with Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal all linked with moves for his signature.

With the holding midfielder is now pushing for a temporary exit, although the above trio are more likely to be eager for a more permanent switch.

Rabiot said: ‘I’ve asked the president for a loan move in January if my time on the field is insufficient. It’s something that he can’t refuse me – I know he likes me very much.

‘When you train all week, you want to be on the field. Sometimes it’s not possible and it’s frustrating.

‘Paris is my city. It’s great to play here. If I could impose myself here, it would be brilliant. I would be ready to play my whole career at PSG if I was a starter. I would see things differently, that’s for sure.’

The France Under-21 international doesn’t appear to be open to a permanent switch, but with Marco Verratti, Blaise Matuidi, Benjamin Stamboulli and Thiago Motta vying for places in Paris, he could grow disillusioned with his lack of action.

Arsenal’s current (and recurring) injury crisis could tempt the Gunners into a loan deal, and it would be of little surprise to see Rabiot enjoy his spell in London and consider a permanent move, should he earn a regular role in the starting line-up.
