Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who has long been a rumoured target for Tottenham, is going nowhere this month according to Goal.
Rabiot joined Juventus on a free transfer last summer after letting his contract with Paris-Saint Germain expire. During his final months in Paris when he was no longer being picked for the first-team, the Frenchman was heavily linked with Spurs but a deal failed to materialise.
Instead he signed a four-year contract with Juventus, for whom he has made 12 appearances across all competitions so far this season. His lack of starts has led to talk of a move to Manchester United or Arsenal, and one wonders whether Tottenham still retain some interest.
However, Goal claims Juventus will not sell Rabiot this month. The Serie A champions apparently see the 24-year-old as an important player who will need to fill in for others during the team’s busy schedule.
Whether Spurs are still keen on Rabiot is unclear, but injuries to Tanguy Ndombele and Moussa Sissoko mean Jose Mourinho may be keen to sign a central midfielder this month. Rabiot, though, seems very unlikely.
