Arsenal’s hopes of signing long-term transfer target Adrien Rabiot have been heavily boosted.
The North London club have chased Adrien Rabiot for some seasons now, with Arsene Wenger a big fan of the 22-year-old Paris Saint-Germain player.
There were suggestions the Arsenal boss made another approach for the versatile midfielder late on in the summer, but nothing ever happened.
Adrien Rabiot has now claimed, however, that a transfer to the Premier League in the future is a possibility – although he also declared he was a Liverpool supporter as a youngster.
Chilean Alexis Sanchez scored a late winning goal for the National team to help them defeat Ecuador 2-1 in their penultimate FIFA World Cup qualifier.
The Arsenal star forward scored an 85th minute winner after goalkeeper Banguera parried a straight shot on the edge of the penalty box straight to the waiting Arsenal striker.
Alexis Sanchez had earlier seen his team throw away the lead as Ibarra equalised for Ecuador with just eight minutes left, but the 28-year-old was on hand to win the match three minutes later.
Chile now move into the third position in the 10-team South American group with their victory on Thursday.
The top four sides qualify automatically for next summer’s World Cup with the fifth-placed team playing Oceania champions New Zealand in a two-legged play-off fixture.
