Juventus have reportedly rejected an offer from Paris Saint-Germain for Stephan Lichtsteiner and will commit him to a new contract.
Apparent issues in negotiations to extend his current deal beyond its June 2015 expiry had raised the possibility and speculation that the Switzerland international could be sold this summer.
However, reports in the defender’s home country indicate that a push from PSG to pick up the 30-year-old has proven unsuccessful.
It is understood that Juve and Lichtsteiner are instead closing in on an agreement for a two-year extension.
