    Rabiot has been on Liverpool's radar over the past transfer windows and the Reds are expected to enter negotiation with Paris Saint Germain for the midfielder who will be out of contract at the end of the season.

    The Barcelona and Liverpool target has resisted a new contract to stay at the French Capital and has since then been frozen out by the Ligue 1 champions.

    And former England star Danny Murphy thinks it will add quality to Jurgen Klopp's midfield plan next season if Rabiot eventually takes Anfield switch.

    "Rabiot is a quality footballer who is technically very good," Murphy told Sportingbet.
    "I wouldn't be surprised if we see him in a Liverpool shirt next season.

    "It's potentially the one area that Liverpool are missing since [Philippe] 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 [Adam] 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."

    Liverpool are also being linked with Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

    Which midfielder should Liverpool sign?
