Adrien Rabiot has admitted he’s focused on his performances at Juventus but still refused to confirm he’ll be putting pen to paper on a new deal.
Following a stuttering start to his career at the Allianz Stadium, the Frenchman has hit his stride under Massimiliano Allegri, growing into a crucial midfield component.
But his contract in Turin expires at the end of the season, with the record-time Italian champions yet to convince the in-demand midfielder to pledge his future to the Bianconeri colours.
Despite being kept in high esteem by Allegri, Rabiot could cut ties with Juventus within less than six months as he seems undecided about committing his future to the club.
“I’m here at Juve, focused on my performances,” the French star said, as quoted by Fabrizio Romano. “I’m not thinking of my contract now – we will see how talks will go in the next months.”
Rabiot has established himself as one of the most consistent midfielders at Juventus this season, bagging six goals and two assists in 25 appearances in all competitions.
While Allegri continues to play the France international every week, his future could be far away from Turin, with several Premier League clubs keeping close tabs on his situation at the Allianz Stadium.
In addition to title-chasing Arsenal, Rabiot has recently caught the eye of Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who’s in the market for a new deep-lying midfielder.
The Reds will part company with underperforming Naby Keita at the end of the season, while veteran James Milner also looks to be on the verge of exiting Anfield as a free agent.
With the duo set to depart the Merseyside outfit, Klopp will have to dive into the market to find a replacement and Rabiot could be a perfect low-cost solution.
