Transfer Balls: Spurs find £20m for PSG’s Adrien Rabiot, who already signed for Roma and Arsenal

Transfer Balls: Are Tottenham readying a bid for PSG’s Adrien Rabiot? The Times says they are:

Tottenham Hotspur have expressed further interest in signing Adrien Rabiot, who has played in midfield for France at all youth levels but has asked to leave Paris Saint-Germain.

Rabiot is represented by his mother, Veronique Rabiot, who says her lad fancies a return to the Premier League (he was on Manchester City’s book for a short time):

“Adrien loves PSG and would love to make a career for himself there, but it’s not possible. He needs 35 games per season to continue his progression, and this won’t happen at PSG next season. I’ve asked for a transfer and it is better that he leaves. Adrien is happy when he wears the colours of PSG. If he cannot play for PSG, then his choice is the Premier League.”

Can Spurs find the £20m fee mooted in the Times ? And can Spurs fans believe this news from Mrs Rabiot? It sounds a lot like an agent talking up their client. After all, it was back in September 2014 when the Sunday People  said Rabiot was refusing to sign a new contract at PSG and had no interest in the Premier League:

Paris Saint-Germain’s highly-rated midfielder Adrien Rabiot is set to disappoint a clutch of English admirers and move to Serie A, writes Neil Moxley in the Sunday People .

The French star has been on the radar of the Premier League’s top clubs, with Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal, champions Manchester City and current league leaders Chelsea all linked with a big-money bid for the 19-year-old… it is understood that the teenager has shunned advances from the Premier League’s finest and has already agreed a pre-contract deal with Roma.

The Roma deal was confirmed in the Express :
