Paris Saint Germain boss Thomas Tuchel has said he is keen to keep Adrien Rabiot at the club.
The France international has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool as he enters the final year of his contract with the Ligue 1 champions.
But former Borussia Dortmund manager Tuchel, who arrived in Paris this Summer, is eager to persuade the midfielder to ignore interest from elsewhere and stay at the Parc des Princes.
“I love working with Adrien.” the German told RMC.
“He had a difficult situation when he missed the World Cup but his effort has been at a maximum.
“He has great potential after being trained at this club.
“He is essential for our approach.
“It is very important to have footballers of this nature.” he finished.
Rabiot has also been linked with moves to Barcelona, Manchester City and Chelsea in recent weeks.
