Why Liverpool should certainly revive their interest in Adrien Rabiot
Liverpool broke their record for longest unbeaten run in the Premier League after routing Manchester United 3-1 at Anfield last weekend.
Jurgen Klopp’s team are a renewed side this season and there’s a lot more discipline about their performances this season. The manager has certainly strengthened the squad in the summer but at the moment, Liverpool could surely do with one or two more signings in the January transfer window.
The Merseyside club are in strong contention for the title this season and they cannot afford anymore slipups. Liverpool should dive straight into the market in January and look at potential signings.
Klopp should reconsider a move for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot. The Frenchman is out of contract in the summer and is yet to agree a new one. According to the ESPN, the Ligue 1 champions will make a final offer for the 23-year-old after which he will be free to leave if he pleases to.
Liverpool could certainly do with a mobile and technically gifted midfielder like Rabiot. The Frenchman was once one of the most sought after midfielders in the world after having come through the youth ranks of PSG.
He was linked with a number of clubs over the summer due to his undying potential. Generally classified as a central midfielder, Rabiot is very good on the ball and always looks to drive forward.
His awareness is very impressive as well and the French international is a pass master in his own class. Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson hasn’t been in the best forms of late and the Reds can replace the England international with Rabiot.
At the age of 23, Rabiot possesses all the traits to flourish in Klopp’s high-pressing game. His ability to swiftly move the ball without slowing down the play is what makes him a lot more attractive than Henderson. Rabiot’s skill of releasing the ball in the right moment will surely bode well for Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.
He is also more than willing to track and support the defence which means the Frenchman should be able to master the gegenpress as well. Rabiot is also very good at creating chances and picking the locks in the final third. Over the last few weeks, Liverpool’s midfield has often failed to produce that creative spark.
Jurgen Klopp should definitely revive his interest in the 23-year-old French midfielder. Adrien Rabiot is a pure footballer and possesses the potential to go on and become the best. Liverpool could also certainly do with a player of his qualities.
