Juventus are pushing for Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko after PSG slammed the door on Blaise Matuidi, but there are other options.
This evening Paris Saint-Germain patron Nasser Al-Khelaifi told Le Parisien that Matuidi “will not be leaving and in fact will extend his contract. He remains an icon for our club.”
The Bianconeri must now turn elsewhere for a Paul Pogba replacement only days away from the transfer deadline on August 31.
Mediaset Premium claim the next target on the list is Sissoko, who had been linked with Inter before they agreed a €45m deal with Sporting CP for Joao Mario.
Sky Sport Italia also put Newcastle United and France talent Sissoko as the first choice post-Matuidi.
The 27-year-old is eager to leave Newcastle after their relegation from the Premier League and is available for around €30m.
Lower down the list are Axel Witsel, though Zenit proved themselves to be very tough negotiators.
Luiz Gustavo of Wolfsburg and Porto’s Hector Herrera are other alternatives.
