If there is one club that likes to shop in Italy, it is indeed Paris Saint-Germain. Of course, Georginio Wijnaldum arrived free from Liverpool but the rest of the summer transfer window in Paris has an Italian accent, certainly thanks to the work of sporting director Leonardo who is very fond of Serie A. While Gianluigi Donnarumma must land from AC Milan to compete with Keylor Navas, Achraf Hakimi will arrive in the French capital to occupy the right flank of the defense. But that’s not all.
The transfer of the Moroccan international almost completed, the Parisian leaders seek to strengthen on the offensive plan since the final transfer of Moise Kean, who was on loan from Everton, is still on stand-by. And behind the scenes, PSG seems to be digging a track that leads to Rome, more precisely on the side of Lazio. Because according to information from the transalpine media such as Il Messaggero, the Parisians are targeting the Argentinian Joaquín Correa!
Rafinha included in the transaction?
Author of a very good season with the Biancocelesti (11 goals, 6 assists in 38 matches), the 26-year-old striker landed a place in the selection to play the Copa America (3 appearances in 3 matches since the start of the competition). And it is not only Lionel Scaloni who has seen his performances in 2020-21 since PSG have taken information, knowing that Leonardo gets along well with Correa’s agent Alessandro Lucci. And to secure the services of the former Sevilla FC player, the capital club has planned everything.
Il Messaggero claim PSG are working on a € 25million bid, with one player in the deal. And this should be Brazilian midfielder Rafinha. What to raise the note? For their part, Lazio would wait around 40M € to release their number 11, still under contract until 2024, and usually Lazio president Claudio Lotito does not like this kind of transactions and prefers only money. The negotiations could therefore be more complicated than expected.
