Liverpool offered Adrien Rabiot in transfer swap deal for Roberto Firmino

Juventus could offer Adrien Rabiot in an attempt to land Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino or midfielder Naby Keita, according to reports.

The France international is entering the final year of his contract at the Old Lady and could walk out the door for FREE next summer.

But according to Calciomercato, Juve are looking to find a solution to the player’s contract situation and could offer him in a transfer swap to Liverpool.

Juve are keen on midfielder Keita and attacker Firmino.

Like Rabiot, both players are ticking over into their final 12 months at their club.

Keita is believed to be valued at a similar price to Rabiot, at just over £17million.

Getting a player in exchange for Guinea international could help soften the blow of a potential £54m loss.

Firmino is valued a little higher than his Liverpool team-mate at £25m to £30m.

Should Liverpool agree to such a swap, Rabiot could become one of the Reds’ marquee summer signings.

Jurgen Klopp has already brought in exciting prospects Calvin Ramsey and Fabio Carvalho.

And Liverpool smashed their transfer record by luring Darwin Nunez away from Benfica.

However, Rabiot says there’s no indication that he will depart Turin this summer.

Speaking about his future and the upcoming World Cup, Rabiot said: “I have not talked about it with the club.

“I try to stay focused on the national team and let my agent do it.

“I am under contract with Juve and nothing indicates to me that I will leave.

“As for the World Cup , it would have nothing to do with my decision. It wouldn’t affect my choice.”
