Ex-Liverpool midfielder identifies one problem Adrien Rabiot would have at Anfield

Danny Murphy revealed he wouldn’t be surprised if Liverpool sign Adrien this summer, however, questioned whether the Paris Saint-Germain star would fit into Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

“Rabiot is a quality footballer who is technically very good and I wouldn’t be surprised if we see him in a Liverpool shirt next season,” Murphy told.

“It’s potentially the one area that Liverpool are missing since Coutinho went to Barcelona and he is a very attractive proposition on a free transfer.

“Klopp might feel he offers something different to what we can offer in midfield at the moment so it certainly wouldn’t be a bad addition.

“The question marks would be whether he is athletic and tenacious enough to fit Klopp’s style of play at Liverpool. He is more of a Lallana mould player who has quick feet and is creative on the ball, but he has had limited opportunities as a result.

“It remains to be seen if Rabiot would be a starter at Liverpool unless they changed to a plan B.”
