Paris Saint Germain have said that they are set to bench midfielder Adrien Rabiot for “misleading” the club.
The Frenchman has been one of the mainstays for them in recent times but has been delaying to sign a new contract at the club.
PSG are looking to replace midfielder Adrien Rabiot who has been benched for an indefinite period of time. The Ligue 1 club has also said that the player has been “misleading” them for some time now in accordance to extending his stay at the French outfit and he is liable for the aforementioned punishment to be imposed on him.
As per reports in The Sun, the Ligue 1 giants are already in the hunt for a player to replace Rabiot and they have their eyes on the Southampton ace Mario Lemina. The former Juventus midfielder has been an integral part of the South Coast club, who have been underperforming this season in the Premier League and are currently stranded at the 17th position in the league table.
The report also says that PSG are set to test the resolve of the new Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl with a bid of £30million for the Gabon international. The former RB Leipzig main man has taken over at the Premier League club and has already seen his side beat north London giants Arsenal in a hard-fought clash at the St Mary’s Stadium in what was his first home match with the Saints.
The Ligue 1 club reportedly also have the likes of Idrissa Gana Gueye from Everton and Abdoulaye Doucoure from Watford on their shortlist to replace Rabiot.
