According to a report by Calciomercato, Adrien Rabiot has booked a spot on the Chelsea transfer wishlist. Rabiot has emerged as a transfer target for Chelsea as he is struggling to find the form under Allegri. Last year’s UCL winners are looking to offload Saul Niguez who is not favoured by Thomas Tuchel. Allegri wants a more offensive contribution from Rabiot who is failing to meet the manager’s demands.
Chelsea signed Saul Niguez on loan From Atletico Madrid. However, he has failed to get playing time under Tuchel. The Blues are also considering letting him return to Colchoneros. Tuchel wants a player who can replace Saul and give him an extra option in the midfield. Chelsea has circled Adrien Rabiot as a replacement for the Spanish midfielder. Chelsea currently sits on top of the Premier League table and are looking very strong in all competitions.
Rabiot has played 11 games in all competitions and has registered only one assist. Massimiliano Allegri has been critical of Adrien Rabiot on some occasions and expects him to deliver more for the Bianconeri. However, the French midfielder has an important role to play for France due to the injuries of some other players. Many clubs will be keeping tabs on Rabiot and his performances for Juventus as well as for the national team.
Why Adrien Rabiot can be a good signing for Chelsea?
Adrien Rabiot has impressed with his performances while playing for the French national team. The 26-year-old can dominate opponents with his physical presence in the midfield. He is also good in the air and can also be a threat on set pieces. Adrien Rabiot has played with N’Golo Kante before for France, following which Chelsea can profit from their chemistry on pitch. Rabiot can play as a box-to-box midfielder while Kante sits back and protects the defence for the Blues.
Saul Niguez is out of plans from Thomas Tuchel’s tactics and can leave Chelsea soon. They are looking for a player who can help their midfield along with Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho, and N’Golo Kante. Adrien Rabiot is a dynamic midfielder who can add great depth to the Chelsea squad. They will have stronger options even for a cup game and will look even a greater threat in all competitions. Rabiot has played as a left-back for France on recent occasions and provides another option for Chelsea. Rabiot and Kante can make one strong pair and complement each other’s qualities and attributes.
Because of Rabiot’s lack of form under Allegri, Chelsea can get him for a cheap price than usual. Although Adrien has expressed his feelings to stay at Juventus if that changes then Chelsea could become the frontrunner for his signatures. Rabiot can be a great replacement for Saul and can work well in the Premier League because of his physical strength. Rabiot’s club performances will also determine his chances in the playing squad for France for the World Cup.
