Newcastle United have been offered the chance to sign Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot - with their new ownership personally interested.

The France international has underwhelmed in Turin since arriving from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer in 2019.

Juventus are desperate to get him off the books and recoup some funds and Calciomercato claim they have St James' Park as an ideal destination.

It's believed Amanda Staveley and the Saudi Public Investment Fund are personally interested in Rabiot, who would cost less than £15 million.

There has been plenty of speculation around Newcastle's potential January signings following a £305 billion takeover.

New manager Eddie Howe wants to strengthen but his personal thoughts on Rabiot are unknown.

The 26-year-old burst onto the scene with PSG and many believed he'd kick on to be one of the world's best midfielders.

He hasn't quite hit those heights, but he's still managed to win five Ligue 1 titles and a Serie A during his career while regularly representing 'Les Bleus' at international level.

Rabiot has recently claimed he sees his future at the Allianz Stadium after also being linked to Manchester United earlier this year.

He told TeleFoot: "I'm happy in Turin. I see my future at Juventus, of course!"

Newcastle are currently 19th in the Premier League and without a win, meaning relegation is a real possibility.

Howe went down with Bournemouth in 2020 and then left, but Staveley has faith in the appointment.

"We had to have someone leading the club that was not frightened of relegation," she told NUFC TV.

"I remember Eddie and I talking about this at the weekend at the Brighton match. He's going back into a position he sat in before so it's not one we've sat in.

"As an investor group, we were not brave but it would have been an easy decision for us to not buy the club just yet, wait 'till probably post-Christmas, post the January window, see where the club sat in the league and then make the acquisition.

"That would have been the safe investment bet, but we didn't do that.

"We felt we took a risk because we knew the club was sitting in 19th position at the time. Eddie took that risk with us knowing that there is always a chance of relegation."
