Liverpool given boost in chase to sign 23-year-old midfielder

The midfield has been a position where Liverpool has been struggling to strengthen in the last couple of transfer windows, with Naby Keita and Fabinho failing to make a significant impact in the team’s performances in recent months.

Therefore, the Reds have maintained an interest in signing Adrien Rabiot and the pursuit of the Frenchman has been handed a boost.

According to what is explained in the Mirror, Barcelona’s interest in the 23-year-old midfielder has cooled down due to a lack of a proper response from his representatives to their offers, thus giving Liverpool a bigger possibility of hiring his services.

Rabiot had been a regular in the last couple of seasons in Paris Saint Germain, but after announcing his desire to leave and not fitting in well with manager Thomas Tuchel’s tactics, he has been mostly sidelined this season.

The player’s contract runs out at the end of this season and Liverpool will have a chance to sign him on a free transfer.
