The report in the French news outlet claims Everton have been in touch with Rabiot to sign him in the summer transfer window.

Newcastle via Everton for Adrien Rabiot
In our opinion, Rabiot would prefer Newcastle to Everton if the Juventus midfielder has offers from both clubs.
The Toffees may not be relegated from the Premier League at the end of the season, but they won’t be in great shape just yet either.
On the other hand, there is a lot of fuss surrounding Newcastle, who are likely to retain their Premier League status for next season.
Newcastle owners, Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF), have already shown what they can do by signing Kieran Trippier and Bruno Guimaraes in the January transfer window.
The Magpies are just starting their big project and that could be very tempting for Rabiot.
