Arsenal boss Unai Emery must return to Paris Saint-Germain and sign midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

That is the opinion of ESPN FC pundit and Liverpool legend Steve Nicol.

Rabiot is out of contract at PSG at the end of June and has previously been a target of Arsenal.

The France midfielder was frozen out by the Ligue 1 giants after rejecting offers of a new deal.

His last appearance came in the 4-1 Champions League win over Red Star Belgrade on December 11 2018.

Emery coached Rabiot for two years at PSG and Nicol believes a reunion would be good for all parties.

“Adrien Rabiot to the Premier League I think would be a good move for any Premier League team,” Nicol said.

“And I think there’s one team in particular who would benefit – Arsenal.

“Unai Emery knows him as well, he should know his game inside out.

“Arsenal need somebody in the middle of the park, that’s for sure.

“I’m going to say Rabiot to the Premier League – yes.

“And the destination should be Arsenal.”
