Arsenal and Juventus are reportedly targeting Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
According to French newspaper Le Parisien, the young Frenchman has had a meeting with the Ligue 1 club's officials, who have reluctantly agreed to sanction a transfer if interested clubs meet their valuation.
Arsene Wenger is keen to bring in a midfielder, as he looks for a long-tem replacement for current Arsenal skipper Mikel Arteta, who is on the final-year of his contract and could target Rabiot with an eye on the future.
The Serie A champions are also on the market for midfielders, especially with current midfielder Arturo Vidal's future remaining uncertain, and are willing to battle the Gunners for his signature.
Apart from the north London club and Juventus, Chelsea are also said to be monitoring the youngster, and reports claim that the Stamford Bridge outfit have had a bid of £7m rejected by the Ligue 1 club. The PSG hierarchy are said to be looking for a fee in the region £10m.
Laurent Blanc is said to be reluctant to sell the teenager, but is ready to sanction a move now rather than lose him on a free transfer next summer. Rabiot's current employers have offered him a new contract, but it was rejected by the player and his mother, who is also his agent.
The club's hierarchy is keen to persuade the youngster to stay as they feel the player has the capabilities to be a future leader at the club.
"Adrien has all the qualities to become a pillar or even one day, the captain of PSG," Le Parisien quoted a club official .
The 19 year-old Rabiot is keen to play regular football and is certain that he will not get that at the French capital club, as he has Marco Verratti, Blaise Matuidi and Yohan Cabaye ahead of him in the pecking order.
