Liverpool are still in the race to sign Adrien Rabiot, according to reports in France.

Barcelona are the favourites to land Rabiot, but the Spanish club were forced to release a statement denying they had reached an agreement with the midfielder.

Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are on bad terms after the sale of Neymar to PSG, and the French giants are thought to be wary of Rabiot moving to Spain.

That has not stopped transfer speculation that the deal to bring Rabiot to the Nou Camp is all but done, and the Frenchman has already snubbed a switch to Tottenham.

L’Equipe, however, insist Liverpool remain in the mix and have held 'several meetings' about Rabiot joining Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

Rabiot could be available this month after telling PSG he would not be signing a new deal.

January is the last month PSG can cash in on Rabiot and the Ligue 1 champions may be tempted to offload the 23-year-old before losing him on a free transfer in the summer.

Rabiot is happy to wait until his contract expires to seal a move away, while PSG have reportedly told suitors they are open to offers this month.

Klopp has been chasing a new midfielder for the last year, with a deal for Lyon star Nabil Fekir falling through last summer.
