Rico has been serving as the back-up to Gianluigi Donnarumma at PSG.
He has failed to make any appearances this season, with Donnarumma starting every game.
Rico made one senior appearance during the first half of the 2021-22 season for PSG.
The 29-year-old has been on PSG’s books since 2019, but he has made only 24 senior appearances for the club.
