Ancelotti eager to bring midfielder Rabiot to England

Adrien Rabiot


Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti wants to bring Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot to England.

The pair worked together at PSG and Rabiot knows his old coach is keen on a reunion.

Rabiot has battled for regular minutes this season and is open to hearing what Ancelotti has planned for him at Goodison Park.

Everton have registered their interest with Juve, which so far are yet to respond.

Rabiot signed for Italian Serie A champions Juventus on a free transfer on 1 July 2019.

He made his debut for the club on 24 August, in the team’s opening match of the 2019–20 Serie A season, coming on as a second-half substitute for Sami Khedira in a 1–0 away win over Parma.

He scored his first goal for the club on 7 July 2020 – the opening goal in a 4–2 away loss to Milan in Serie A with a “spectacular finish from the edge of the box after running with the ball from his own half.

At the international level Rabiot made senior debut for France on 15 November 2016 against Ivory Coast, starting and being replaced by Thomas Lemar after 78 minutes of the 0–0 friendly home draw, due to a hamstring injury.

On 17 May 2018, he was put on the reserve list by manager Didier Deschamps for the 2018 FIFA World Cup squad.

However, he controversially refused to be put on the standby list, emailing the coach and saying he would not “be able to follow the training programme”. Noël Le Graët, president of the French Football Federation, commented: “He made a bad decision. He penalises himself and sanctions himself alone.
