Arsenal and Manchester United could miss out on signing Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot as Marseille have reportedly entered the running.
The 20-year-old is said to be open to leaving Parc des Princes as he has only started nine Ligue 1 games this season.
Arsenal are believed to have opened talks with Rabiot's mother and agent Veronique over a loan move with an option to buy for £11.2m in the summer, while United have also been linked.
It has been reported that the North-West club are willing to pay PSG's valuation of £21.4m to seal Rabiot's signature this month.
However, according to the Daily Mail, Marseille have put forward the proposal of a loan move for Rabiot, who made his senior debut for PSG in 2012.
The midfielder has made 13 appearances for the French club this season.
