Juventus and France midfielder Adrien Rabiot has revealed that Steven Gerrard is his footballing ‘idol’ following the playmaker’s recent links to Anfield.
According to reports in the Italian media recently, Rabiot is a candidate to join Jurgen Klopp’s Reds in the summer.
With his contract set to expire at the end of the season and with no renewal yet announced by the Old Lady, Rabiot’s future in Turin is uncertain, which has prompted suggestions that he could be destined for a free transfer to the Premier League.
Although Manchester United have been linked in the past, with Casemiro, Christian Eriksen and on-loan midfielder Marcel Sabitzer all doing well under Erik Ten Hag, it seems unlikely the Red Devils will reignite their interest in the French international.
And that could open the door for one of their rivals to lure him away from the Allianz Stadium, especially considering Klopp is desperate for energetic midfielder reinforcements.
When asked for his thoughts on Liverpool, Rabiot, as quoted by the Italian press, said: “My idol is Steven Gerrard.”
