"During the summer transfer window, I told Mr Henrique that I wanted Adrien to be transfer-listed because Adrien wanted to leave the club and that was said quite clearly".
Gunners boss Unai Emery is in the middle of a rebuilding job at the Emirates and he could view Rabiot as a potential replacement for Aaron Ramsey with the Welshman set to leave when his contract expires in June 2019.
Now Henrique has hit back by sensationally suggesting that Barcelona breached transfer rules to try and sign their curly-haired star.
The January transfer window is just around the corner and managers are working hard on possible deals or identifying targets for the summer so we'll keep you up-to-date with the latest rumours.

However, Henrique does not believe this and responded to the Rabiot pair in an interview with RMC Sport shortly after Veronique spoke with RTL. The proposal from Barca was ridiculous and the club was very surprised that the offer was so low.
"It is simple, this means that Barcelona must have had an agreement with Rabiot before coming to discuss with us". When Adrien was 19, he did not resist and signed an extension. L'Equipe states that talks of an agreement with Barcelona are untrue, something which has also been pushed by the Catalan media. "This player has always received the club's full support".
"It is a club decision, and I respect and understand their stance", he told Canal+.
Henrique added that the two parties had held "positive exchanges" in previous months, and that PSG had "accepted all the conditions of the player" in terms of his role at the club.
"I've said a lot of times I love the player, but the situation has been going on for a long time, that's how it is".
