People sprouting he has a bad attitude, he has this, hes done that. He probably prefers a move to us over Arsenal due to Carlo being our manager and thinks he can work things out. Hopefully getting back to his best because he is a talented midfielder ?

People going on like our manager is Silva or something! Hes managed some of the biggest names in football with attitude problems an all! He has won the league in different countries & the CL *3 if he wants him, we get him! No questions.

Would you be pleased if the Toffees signed Adrien Rabiot from Juventus?
Yes, we should do it
No, we don't need him
So far this season, Rabiot has been the seventh-worst performer for Juventus in Serie A with a 6.7/10 average rating (per WhoScored).
Great player & massive upgrade! Carlo will@help get his head straight.

What do we think?
As can be seen in these responses from Everton fans, they were fairly pleased to read that Rabiot would rather join up with Carlo Ancelotti than with Arteta.
While his rating for Juventus looks weak on the face of it (per WhoScored), the same rating for Everton in the Premier League would make him the joint-ninth-best performer for the Toffees (per WhoScored).
