Juventus ask PSG for Paredes

Juventus are said to be in negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain for midfielder Leandro Paredes.

According to the Corriere dello Sport and Sky Sport Italia, Paredes is one of the players named by new coach Andrea Pirlo as an ideal reinforcement.

The 26-year-old Argentina international is no stranger to Serie A, having already played very briefly for Chievo, then Empoli and Roma.

He had 18 months at Zenit St Petersburg before moving to PSG in January 2019 for €40m.

Paredes managed 33 competitive appearances for the Parisians in the 2019-20 season, contributing one goal and one assist.

It’s possible Juve will try to use player exchanges to lower the asking price, with figures such as Mattia De Sciglio known to be PSG targets.
