Everton is expected to make a ‘concrete plan’ to Juventus for Adrien Rabiot’s services, according to sources. The midfielder has fallen short of standards at Juventus and could be deemed surplus to requirements in Turin as the club looks to revamp its roster.
Everton has an ‘unwavering stake’ in Rabiot, according to Tuttosport. When Carlo Ancelotti was in charge of PSG, the French midfielder was a favorite of Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti. While Ancelotti was the boss of PSG, he recruited Rabiot from the club’s youth system to the first team.
Adrien Rabiot joined Juventus on a free transfer in the summer of 2019 after being courted by several leading European clubs. The Frenchman took some time to adjust to life in Turin, but he quickly established himself as a regular under former Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri.
Rabiot has played in 35 games for Juventus under new manager Andrea Pirlo. However, the Italian coach is dissatisfied with the player’s lack of discipline and effort.

Juventus is thought to be open to the possibility of selling Rabiot in the summer to raise funds for new signings. If this occurs, it would be excellent news for Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton.
Under the Italian tactician, Everton is facing a revolt. Last summer, the Merseyside club signed a slew of top-tier stars, including James Rodriguez, Allan, and Abdoulaye Doucoure, to improve their chances of qualifying for Europe.
They are still eighth in the Premier League standings. Carlo Ancelotti’s squad is just two points behind Tottenham Hotspur in sixth position and five points clear of the Champions League positions.
Meanwhile, Carlo Ancelotti and the Everton hierarchy have begun preparing preparations for the summer to compete for a spot in the Champions League next season.
In this respect, the Toffees have turned to Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot, who may be eligible for as little as €20 million.
