Liverpool FC have held positive talks about signing Paris Saint-Germain star Adrien Rabiot, according to French football journalist Julien Laurens.

Liverpool FC were one of the busiest sides in the summer transfer window as they brought in a number of new players including Fabinho and Alisson Becker.

With the transfer window having closed before the start of the new Premier League season, attentions will now gradually turn towards the mid-season window as January gives Premier League clubs the chance to add to their squads.

According to some recent reports in the French media, Liverpool FC are expressing a strong interest in signing the 23-year-old.

And now, French journalist Laurens has claimed that Liverpool FC have held positive talks about signing the PSG man.

Speaking to The Anfield Wrap, Laurens said: “I think it was quite positive.

“I don’t think it’s the first time Rabiot’s men have talked with people from the club.

“The interest from Klopp is even pre-Liverpool and Liverpool, since Klopp have always been there.

“Perhaps not as much as now. At 23, he is an incredible talent, offers something differently to what they already have.

“I think there have been a lot of positives so far in those contacts.

“There is a long way ahead but, if you look at Naby Keita, they played a blinder in getting him in early.

“You can see similarities with Rabiot and they may get a pre-contract agreement.“That would then allow him to move to Liverpool on a free in the summer.
“Or they may even try and sign him for cheaper from PSG in January.

“But if Klopp realises he doesn’t need another midfielder – because it’s a position where they have a lot of talented players – he may try and sign him for free the following summer.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool FC will return to Premier League action after the international break when the Reds take on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.

The Merseyside outfit have made a solid start to the new Premier League season and have won all four of their top-flight games so far this term.

Liverpool FC are still aiming to win their first trophy under Klopp since his appointment back in 2015.
