France midfielder Adrien Rabiot says he would "love" to play in the Premier League - and name dropped Liverpool as a potential destination.

He indicated that he would like to play abroad in future, having come close to joining Roma three years ago and also been linked with Arsenal and Tottenham, with Arsenal having been long-term admirers of the Paris Saint-Germain star, who has spoken of his desire to play in the Premier League.

"I think I would like to experience something else [outside Ligue 1]. There are a lot of very good leagues. It's also enriching to go elsewhere, but for the moment I'm happy at PSG," Rabiot was quoted as saying by the Mirror.

"I would love to play in the Premier League, not necessarily one club in particular, even though I was very fond of Liverpool when I was young."

The France international said he felt he could continue to improve as a player, adding that he wanted to "be more present in front of goal, to score more and to complete more passes."

He added: "For a box-to-box midfielder, it's essential to be decisive. I could also make progress in terms of my aerial game in front of goal. There are a lot of things, but I feel that I'm making progress."

The PSG academy graduate once suggested that the club should grant him a loan move as a Christmas present when he was struggling to break into the first team and said: "I can understand that my ambition and my impatience might annoy some people. But the main thing is that it has helped me... sometimes you have to dare to say things."

Rabiot, 22, has started every match for PSG this season and so will not come cheap, but with Emre Can's future in doubt as contract talks drag on, Jurgen Klopp's side could be in need of a new central midfielder, according to the Sun.

The Germany international has been stalling on signing a new deal at Anfield and Juventus are eager to snap him up either in January or next summer.
