Liverpool have reportedly joined Tottenham in the race to land Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot during the upcoming January transfer window.

According to French newspaper Le10Sport, despite the young French midfielder only recently extending his contract with the Ligue 1 club until the summer of 2019, he is keen to leave the club on a temporary basis to get regular game time.

Rabiot has struggled to get into the starting XI at PSG on a consistent basis and there were reports in the summer, linking him to a permanent move away from the club with Arsenal and Tottenham interested in acquiring his services.

The midfielder has now committed his future to the French champions, but still finds himself behind the likes of Blaise Matuidi, Marco Verratti, Thiago Motta and Yohan Cabaye for a place in the midfield. Thus has decided that he should leave the club for a six-month loan once the upcoming transfer window opens.

Tottenham have been big admirers of the player and are keen to take him to White Hart Lane for the remainder of the season. However, they will now face competition from Premier League rivals Liverpool, who are also looking at bringing in reinforcements in January.

Apart from the English teams, Italian side AS Roma are keeping tabs on the midfielder, who was close to joining them in the summer.

The report claims that PSG are open to the idea of letting Rabiot leave on a short-term loan deal and are weighing up whether to let him move to the Premier League or the Serie A in Italy.

The Italian club could have a slight advantage when it comes to completing the deal, as PSG manager Laurent Blanc is said to be a big admirer of Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic and is keen to sign him either during the upcoming transfer window or during the summer.

All three teams are reportedly offering the player a six-month loan deal and have agreed to take full responsibility of his wages as well.
