Premier League clubs dealt transfer blow after midfielder commits to Juventus
Several Premier League clubs are set to miss out on the transfer of Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot in the summer, as the Frenchman commits his future to the Bianconeri.
During an interview with Tuttosport, Vincenzo Morabito, who is a famous FIFA agent and is also an international mediator that has specialised in the Premier League throughout the years, claimed that Rabiot is a target for Manchester City and Everton.
However, he also confirmed that the French midfielder will not be leaving Juventus.
"He is a transfer target of Manchester City, but he is not going to leave Juventus," Morabito stated.
Everton were reportedly set to make an offer to sign him in February for next season, yet it seems like the Toffees will not be able to sign him.
Rabiot has been very impressive for Juventus this season, shining under the management of Andrea Pirlo after struggling for consistency under Maurizio Sarri last season.
In November, Pirlo described Rabiot as a 'complete player', with him being capable of attacking and defending very efficiently.
Rabiot arrived at Juventus in 2019 after his contract at Paris Saint-Germain expired, the club where he spent plenty of his career at.
Whilst Carlo Ancelotti is a long-term admirer of him, working with the 25-year-old in the past, it seems like Everton will miss out on signing him.
Rabiot's value over recent months has increased, and he is now valued at around £28.8 million according to Transfermarkt, so it would be a big ask for someone to convince Juventus to sell him.
