PSG prepare €15m Gilardino bid

Paris Saint-Germain are said to be stepping up their bid to sign Alberto Gilardino from Fiorentina for €15m.

The striker has been linked with a move to France all summer, but according to the negotiations are advancing rapidly.

It's reported PSG are prepared to pay the full €15m price-tag in cash for Gilardino, plus a contract worth €5m per season.

The Italy international currently earns €2.5m per season at Fiorentina, so the move would double his wages.

Among the clubs interested in Gila are Genoa and Olympique Marseille.

Paris Saint-Germain have been very busy since hiring Leonardo as their new director general, signing Jeremy Menez from Roma plus Palermo duo Javier Pastore and Salvatore Sirigu.
