PSG forward and Spain international Pablo Sarabia has his days in Paris numbered and he is closer than ever to setting base in England. According to the Spanish newspaper As, Wolverhampton have submitted an offer to PSG to acquire the attacker in January.
The media outlet reported the news on Thursday afternoon. Sarabia is expected to be sold by PSG as soon as they get an offer "good enough" for them according to the valuation of the forward by the Parisian club.
PSG bought Sarabia for €18M back in Jul. 2019 from Spanish side Sevilla, then loaned him out to Sporting CP last season.
We reported about the interest of the Portuguese giants in re-acquiring the forward a few hours ago with their coach Ruben Amorim confirming the interest. That said, it's still unclear whether or not Sporting has the economical means to acquire the Spaniard, which might put them off the race for his services.
On Thursday, though, a much stronger suitor popped up in the Sarabia transfer saga: Premier League side Wolves, now coached by fellow Spaniard Julen Lopetegui.

According to AS, "PSG want to recoup all of the money they spent on Sarabia putting together initial and variable fees." Sarabia will see his current deal with PSG run out in the summer of 2024, with Paris Saint-Germain trying to get rid of him before they can lose the forward for nothing.
AS also warns that if PSG passes on the Wolves offer, "the price they will be forced to quote Sarabia at next summer will most probably be lower than the current one."
Sarabia has appeared in 19 games this season with PSG but he's only played 626 minutes, which would translate to a measly seven full games over the season, on a per-90-minute basis.
Sarabia is known to want a larger role and more playing time, but there is not a chance for him to get such privilege in Paris with Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe or sitting clearly above him in the talent and pecking order of the club. Not to mention his mediocre contributions to the squad while on the pitch.
Expect news about a sale involving Sarabia sooner than later. The time has come for the Spanish forward to go.
