Liverpool – we’re ready to get hurt again!
Not much is going on with Liverpool because of the international break, which seems the perfect time to get mindlessly excited about a transfer rumour that almost definitely won’t happen.
Yesterday, PSG’s superb young midfielder Adrien Rabiot spoke about his desire to depart Ligue 1 at some stage, with the Premier League a viable option.
What’s more, he named Liverpool as his favourite club!
“I think I would like to experience something else [outside Ligue 1],” the 22-year-old said, translated by the Star.
“There are a lot of very good championships, it’s also very rewarding to go elsewhere.
“I would love to play in the Premier League, not necessarily one club in particular, even though I was very fond of Liverpool when I was young.”
Rabiot has three caps for France but has become a starter at PSG, who are rightly up there with Real Madrid as Champions League favourites due to their summer purchases of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
He has excellent technical skills and at 6 ft. 2′, provides physicality to a central midfield three, too.
At the moment, he’s not on Coutinho’s level but would be an upgrade on our other central midfielders – bar Naby Keita – who’s arriving next summer (or January if we’re lucky).
Still, PSG are the richest club in the world and have no reason to sell a homegrown product like Rabiot who’s yet to reach his peak.
