One-time Arsenal midfielder Robert Pires has claimed that Unai Emery’s previous connections with Paris Saint-Germain could help the Spaniard land the French star Adrien Rabiot during the summer transfer market.
The Ligue 1 midfielder’s contract at the Parisians will run out at the end of this season and so a whole host of sides will be keen on recruiting him which includes Arsenal who might have an advantage over their rivals according to Pires.
In a recent interview with Bwin, the Gunners legend shared his thoughts on the move and said:
“Rabiot is a very good player and Arsenal should be trying their best to secure his signature before any other club does.”
“Arsenal have the advantage of Emery having already worked with him at PSG, which should hopefully sway Rabiot to join Arsenal.”
