Liverpool have reportedly pulled out of the race to sign Adrien Rabiot despite reports surfacing last week, linking the Reds with a move for the Frenchman.
The Nabil Fekir saga fell flat at the close of the Premier League transfer window early last month and then last week, news broke that Liverpool were interested in signing Adrien Rabiot this summer.
Sources close to ESPN said that Liverpool were very keen on Rabiot, especially if they were able to sign him on a free transfer and reportedly made contact with the player’s mother, who acts as his agent.
While the Frenchman is a player that would certainly bring a new approach to Klopp’s midfield, reports from Italy claim that Liverpool have pulled out of talks for Rabiot.
According to the Echo, “Liverpool have no interest in signing Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot.”
Ian Doyle writes that the club is “baffled” by suggestions talks have taken place with the player’s mother, who is also his agent, and Football Italia have also written that there are no moves being made to bring Rabiot to Anfield.
While Liverpool aren’t interested in signing Rabiot, Juve and Barcelona maintain a desire to sign the Frenchman and with his contract expiring next summer, he may well be available for free if they bide their time.
Football Italia write: “While Liverpool had been among the favourites for his signature, they have turned their focus elsewhere.”
