Liverpool poised for transfer battle with Barcelona over classy midfield target


 Liverpool and Barcelona are reportedly both eager to land Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot and potentially face a transfer scrap  As it stands, the 23-year-old will be available on a free transfer at the end of the season with his current contract set to expire  SEE MORE: Photos: Liverpool’s Salah immortalised with bizzare statue which some fans have compared to infamous Ronaldo bust  With that in mind, coupled with the quality that he could bring to either Anfield or the Nou Camp, it’s no surprise that Liverpool and Barcelona are said to be keen on snapping him up, as noted by Mundo Deportivo, and re-reported by The Sun  It’s added that the Merseyside giants have made a ‘powerful offer’ to convince him to move to England, although Juventus, Man City and AC Milan are mentioned as other interested parties while PSG will undoubtedly hope to convince the French international to sign a renewal  If they fail to do so, then selling him in January for a cut-price deal would seem to make more sense than losing him for nothing next summer, but it remains to be seen if that’s the path that they follow  For now, it’s suggested that Liverpool are ready to rival Barcelona for his signature, with Jurgen Klopp seemingly still keen to bolster his midfield options despite signing Fabinho and Naby Keita this past summer  Add the likes of James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson to the mix, and the German tactician appears to have plenty of options in that department  Nevertheless, given Rabiot’s classy ability on the ball in terms of technical quality, passing and goal threat, he could add a different dynamic for Liverpool  With those characteristics in mind, he would arguably be a perfect fit for Barcelona too, and so it remains to be seen who wins the battle to sign him next year if he does leave the French capital More Stories about Adrien Rabiot AC Milan, Juventus transfer boost: Target to snub €8m-a-year contract offer to open door to exit October 30, 2018 22:12 Barcelona transfer blow as Liverpool offer star tempting salary and huge signing on-bonus October 17, 2018 22:15 Barcelona face Juventus in double transfer battle: €50m defensive starlet, classy midfield ace on radar October 11, 2018 8:12
