    Unfortunately for him and his compatriots there was heartbreak in store as they were defeated 4-2 by Argentina in the showpiece on Sunday.

    However, big things could still be on the horizon for Rabiot as he appears to be finally closing in on a move to the Premier League after his failed switch to Manchester United last summer.

    Repubblica are claiming Arsenal are now pushing to sign Rabiot in the January transfer window.

    The playmaker’s contract expires in June and he is allowed to discuss terms with teams outside of Italy from January 1.

    But rather than lose him for nothing, Juventus are more likely willing to offload him for a cut-price fee mid-season.

    And it appears the opportunistic Gunners are ready to pounce to try and bolster their midfield.

    Mikel Arteta’s team were left decimated by injury towards the end of last season which led to them missing out on Champions League football.

    Now, with his squad sitting top of the Premier League, he is determined not to let the same happen again and he eyes reinforcements to continue their title charge.

    Rabiot ended his nine-year stint at Paris Saint-Germain in 2019, which included a loan spell at Toulouse, to join Juventus.

    After winning Serie A in his first season, he has only managed to add the SuperCoppa and Coppa italia to his trophy cabinet since.

    Meanwhile, five-point leaders Arsenal return to domestic action with a home clash against West Ham on Boxing Day.
