I've never seen him have a good game. It's probably not a valid sample size, but he's one of those where I must have missed the great ones since he seems to be floating around top clubs.

Reminds me of Lassana Diarra played for Arsenal, Chelsea and Madrid so you would assume he was a world beater but in reality he was just a decent player.

I’ve watched him plenty and he’s a painfully average player with a languid style of play. Never looks like he’s giving it his all on the pitch. Technique wise, he’s just a deluxe Scott Mctominay.

No one should be paying anything for him, one year reamining on his contract and must be earning a lot after his free transfer.

He isn't worth anything more than his wages.

Better overall player than Mc Tominay and better on the ball than Fred. Won't take more than 6-8 Millions per year, so don t really understand why we would say no.

Only issue is his mother, but I won't be against a duo him and you know who...

At 15M, it's a big yes.

For the quoted price he seems to be good value to provide competition and depth in CM. Just don't know what his wage demand is. I just can't see Arsenal can offer him more than 150k per week as squad player.

Sadly, Rabiot is exactly the type of player I think that we are likely to end up signing...:rolleyes:

I thought we wanted to clear the dressing room of underachieving divas? Hard pass, not anywhere near good enough and too much baggage.

I'm sure Newcastle can snap him up
I am sure Arteta will look at him. After all Arsenal was interested in Arthur Melo back in January so Arteta wants another CM in the team for depth. 15M seems reasonable for the risk.

Arteta would likely steer way clear over Rabiot. He doesn't want a cirucs.

Is his mom/agent still an issue? Rabiot is a deep lying CM who can play along with Xhaka/Partey in a midfield 2 with Odegaard as #10. A good squad option for 15m. He is 27 so he should be fully developed as a player already. Coach should know by now what he can bring to the team. I know nothing about Arsenal's transfer business but 15m seems like a good budget option.
