Chelsea are seriously considering a move for Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot in January as Graham Potter is looking to add the midfielder to his squad.

As per Spanish outlet Fichajes, Chelsea are pretty determined to negotiate a move for Adrien Rabiot and could plot a transfer in the winter transfer window. The French midfielder’s current contract is up for expiry next summer, and he could leave the club for free.

Chelsea have huffed and puffed to grind out positive results in their favour despite having a bright start under Graham Potter’s tutelage. A sequence of five winless matches has put pressure on the former Brighton & Hove Albion manager, and significant changes will be made at the start of next year.

Both Jorginho and N’Golo Kante could become free agents in the summer as there has not been any discussion regarding the extension of their current deals. Kante has reportedly expressed his intention to stay beyond this season. But the west Londoners need to table a suitable offer which suits his current situation.

Jorginho has not committed anything as Barcelona have been waiting for him in the wings. And the Italian international wants to use this occasion to grind out the best possible deal for him. In such a scenario, Adrien Rabiot has now emerged as the priority target for Chelsea.

Rabiot had been linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer, and Juventus were keen to forego the rest of the contract for a meagre transfer fee. But both parties failed to reach a consensus regarding his personal terms, as the Red Devils refused to give into his exorbitant demands.

They went on to bring in Casemiro from Real Madrid. And since then, Manchester United have stopped pursuing the French midfielder.

The 27-year-old has fairly done well this season, but the Bianconeri seem to be uninterested in offering him fresh terms. They will be more than happy if clubs come calling for his service as the Italian club would like to have a minor profit by offloading the player off their books.

Rabiot does not have any problem accepting a new challenge and a good showing in the World Cup would raise his demand even more. It will be interesting to see if the 27-year-old Frenchman secures a move to Chelsea.
