    I'm not sure that description fits Rabbiot, at least from the limited times I have seen him.

    I've not been impressed with him from what I've seen. Generally slow, and very slow in turning. OK with the ball, but not more. Would be eaten alive in the PL today IMO.

    Ottawa, actually.
    This guy could also be a fantastic signing. Year left on his deal, apparently wants out of PSG. :)

    Could he replace Dembele?

    He doesn't have the same Velcro-toe'd, swivel-hipped dribbling style.

    But he's a strong, fearless dribbler with the size and resolve to simply force his way forward if needed. He has the physical attributes and mental approach that would work well in the PL.

    No idea what he's like off the pitch, but he strikes me as an ambitious player looking to play with a team that shares that attitude. Moura and Lloris would have useful insights to offer Poch.

    Would think Emry and the Goonies would be in for him too if he was available

    Just as long as he does not teach him how to take throw ins.

    My concern about this player is his attitude. He was put on standby for the French world club squad but snubbed it because he was not in the original 23. I remember when his mother was making waves a couple of years ago when he was not starting for PSG. As a player I rate him but if he finds himself on the bench I fear he could be a problem

    I'd take the other two's opinions over Serge's.

    i'd think that we'd let him know what to expect with poch, and i think that he would realise by now his mistake. so its the RIGHT time to get him in, IF we are offloading dembele, as i expect him to be a regular starter

    i think he's the sort of player who'd rather observe than react at first instinct. kinda like modric who isn;'t fast but makes up for it by anticipation (observation). Though I agree that he looks less motivated defending than going forwards but i think that's the reason why we'd be getting him - to bring the ball forwards.

    I would be surprised if PSG would allow to him leave. He was arguably their best central midfielder last season

    Unfortunately for PSG, the argument is an escalating one between themselves and Rabiot.

    And the club think they can do better.

    It's just a dance for a new contract. Our name got used for the same purpose 4 years ago too.

    Guardian speculating today that it's on.

    I can't see Poch being into him.

    He's got massive attitude problems and just refused to go to the WC with France
