As reported by Italian newspaper La Repubblica (via LazioNews24) earlier today, PSG are interested in signing the 26-year-old Biancocelesti forward, who is not a natural fit for coach Maurizio Sarri’s 4-3-3 system.
With Lazio being fans of the 29-year-old Sarabia, an exchange deal between the two players could still take place, although the Biancocelesti want the French side to include greater financial compensation in the deal.
Talks will continue over the coming days and the deal could take a decisive turn next week, after the conclusion of both the Copa America and Euro 2020. Lazio’s pre-season training camp kicks off on 10th July, so the club will be keen to close out any deals before too much of that retreat passes.
Sarabia, who is contracted to PSG until 2024, made 27 Ligue 1 appearances last season, for a total of 1312 minutes. In that time, he scored six goals and provided four assists.
