The reports have revealed that Roma have reached an agreement with the French giants PSG and soon the teenager will be heading to Italy for a medical.
Reports revealed few days ago that Adrien Rabiot was on the verge of signing for the North London side Arsenal. But now French newspaper L'Equipe have said that a £12million fee has been agreed between both the sides. The Italian side have already signed Arsenal target Kostas Manolas from Olympiakos and are set to beat the Gunners once again.
PSG President Nasser Al Khelaifi also said that Rabiot will be leaving this month.
The 19-year-old has a one year left on his PSG’s contract and PSG fear that they might lose him on free next summer if they fail to sell him this month.
With only three days left in the transfer window, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is still in search of a midfielder but no recent updates have shown any positive signs.
Due to less playing time the teenager is set to join a side that could offer regular time on the field and Roma are the perfect side which could fulfill his dream. He made 34 appearances for the Ligue one giants.
Rabiot will also be playing Champions League for Roma as they are now back in the competition.
