TOP STORY: Newcastle eyes Rabiot for big signing

Calciomercato has reported that Newcastle United are interested to sign Adrien Rabiot, a Juventus midfielder.

According to reports, the Old Lady would be open to moving on the France international midfielder as they begin a squad shakeup. However, the 26-year old would prefer a move into the Premier League.

Juventus is looking to reshuffle their midfield -- AS Monaco's Aurelien Tchouameni, Manchester United's Donny Van de Beek are options -- but the Italian side needs to move some players.

Newcastle are being linked to a number of transfers because of the wealth of their new owners. Rabiot, the UEFA Nations League winner, is the latest to join the discussion.

Juventus could move him on at a low valuation and lose very little. The player was a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain. He has had a mixed bag of injuries and inconsistent performances in Serie A.

Rabiot could be looking for a new club to help him stay with Les Bleus in the race for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
