Juventus midfielder and France international Adrien Rabiot has admitted he will love to play in the Premier League amid interest from Chelsea.

“I have always said that I’d like to play in England in my career. I still have that desire,” Rabiot told The Athletic.

“I’d like to evolve in the Premier League. It’s the league, it’s the level of play that’s going on, that’s what attracts me most. It corresponds to my qualities.

“I haven’t got a Premier League team in mind right now. I haven’t chosen a team or anything. It’s a general thing.”

Rabiot has just over six months left to run on his current contract with Juventus. Rabiot is said to be demanding £8.6million net per year to stay at Juventus, who are considering letting him depart Turin on a free in July.

The Frenchman enjoyed an impressive start to the season under Massimiliano Allegri before heading off to the World Cup, registering five goals and two assists in 16 appearances for Juve.
