Adrien Rabiot, the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder, has said that one day he would “love” to play in the Premier League and that he grew up as a Liverpool supporter.
So far, Rabiot, who is 22, has started every match this season for PSG and he is under contract until 2019.
He suggested that he would like to play abroad in the future. Three years ago he came close to joining Roma and he has also been linked with Arsenal and Tottenham.
Speaking to RMC radio Rabiot said, “There are a lot of very good leagues. It’s also enriching to go elsewhere, but for the moment I’m happy at PSG. I would love to play in the Premier League. There’s not necessarily any club in particular, even though when I was young I was a big Liverpool fan.”
In the past, the PSG academy suggested that the club should grant him a loan move as a Christmas present when he was struggling to gain a place in the first team.
In the same interview, he said that he thinks he can continue to develop as a player and mentioned in particular that he would like to be “more present in front of goal, to score more and to complete more passes.”
He added, “For a box-to-box midfielder, it’s essential to be decisive. I could also make progress in terms of my aerial game in front of goal. There are a lot of things, but I feel that I’m making progress. I can understand that my ambition and my impatience might annoy some people. But the main thing is that it has helped me… sometimes you have to dare to say things.”
