Lichtsteiner set for Juve talks

Juventus will reportedly hold talks with the agent of Stephan Lichtsteiner this week about Paris Saint-Germain’s interest in him.

Although PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti has insisted that the right-back is not one of their targets, the transfer rumour mill continues to link the defender with the French outfit.

It is being claimed that Juventus director general Beppe Marotta will meet with the Swiss international’s representative towards the end of the week to discuss their options.

The Old Lady now value the former Lazio player, signed at a cost of €10.5m last summer, at around €15m.

Paris SG are also said to be willing to offer the stopper a four-year deal worth €4m a campaign – around double his current salary.

The Turin giants could consider a sale given the presence of Martin Caceres, Simone Pepe and Mauricio Isla in their squad given that they can all play on the right in a 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 system.
