‘That’s what attracts me most’ – Liverpool midfielder target explains why he has a ‘desire’ to play for the reds in the Premier League
Adrien Rabiot, who has been linked to Liverpool, stated that he would like to play in the Premier League and that he thinks he can succeed there.
At the end of the current campaign, the Juventus midfielder, who Manchester United was interested in signing in the summer, is scheduled to become a free agent, and other clubs around Europe are reportedly keeping an eye on him.
The Frenchman, who spent time at Manchester City as a youngster, believes that the Premier League is ‘different’ to what he’s experienced in France and Italy so far during his career and explained why he’s interested in a return to England.
“It was very good experience [playing the Man City academy]. I didn’t do a whole season, though,” he told The Athletic (via Rousing The Kop).
“Everything went well while I was there. I really liked the atmosphere. It’s really something that is only in England. It’s different from France and Italy.
“I have always said that I’d like to play in England in my career, I still have that desire. I’d like to evolve in the Premier League.
“I haven’t got a Premier League team in mind right now, I haven’t chosen a team or anything. It’s a general thing. It’s the league, it’s the level of play that’s going on, that’s what attracts me most. It corresponds to my qualities.”
It’s no secret that Jurgen Klopp is wanting to sign a new midfielder either in January or in the summer and to sign Rabiot on a free contract would be a quality bit of business.
