PSG will see many players return to Paris this summer following year-long spells away from the capital on loan at different clubs. One of those players, Leandro Paredes, spent last season at Juventus and he might be on his way back to Italy ahead of next campaign.

According to the latest reports, fellow Serie A side Lazio has shown interest in acquiring Paredes from PSG this summer.

The Argentine world champion was loaned to Juventus last year in a deal that included a non-mandatory purchase option of €22m. After failing to convince the Turin club, Paredes is now back at PSG and looking at alternatives as he's not wanted back in Paris.

During his time at Juventus last season, Paredes played 35 matches across all competitions, starting in 14 of them, scoring one goal and providing one assist. With his contract at PSG running until June 2024, PSG need to find a new club to dump him.

Aside from Lazio, other clubs have also shown interest in Paredes. Galatasaray, Atletico Madrid, and AS Roma have been mentioned as potential destinations.

Lazio are coming off a season in which they qualified for the Champions League and they're looking to strengthen their squad for both European and domestic competitions, with Paredes targeted by the club as a potential addition with experience in Italy after his time at Juventus.

Football insider Gianluca Di Marzio has reported that PSG may be open to letting Paredes go for "a reasonable price", although they'd refuse to sell him on the cheap.

Additionally, there is a possibility that both Milan clubs, Internazionale and AC Milan, could consider Paredes as a bargain opportunity. The player himself is keen to stay in Italy and continue competing in the Champions League, so a transfer to any of the aforementioned clubs is a realistic option for all parties involved.
