PSG shortlist Federico Chiesa amid search for Neymar replacement

PSG shortlist Federico Chiesa amid search for Neymar replacement

Paris Saint-Germain are weighing up a move for wantaway Juventus forward Federico Chiesa, claims La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Ligue 1 champions are scouring the market in search of a replacement for Neymar, who is set to join Al-Hilal.

The Saudi Pro League club have agreed a deal with PSG worth €90 million while the Brazilian will pocket a mouthwatering €150m in wages per year.

PSG have begun searching for a replacement, and Chiesa has emerged as a target, with the Italian keen to leave Juventus this summer.

Chiesa has several admirers across Europe, especially in the Premier League, having been linked with Liverpool, Arsenal and Newcastle United.

German champions Bayern Munich have also expressed an interest in the former Fiorentina man, while PSG are weighing up the possibility of a transfer.

Without the prospect of European football this season, Juventus will not stand in Chiesa’s way if a bid of around €60m arrives.

The Italy international is also open to a summer departure, and PSG can offer him a chance to feature in the Champions League this season.

Chiesa has two years left on his contract in Turin and is a strong candidate to replace Neymar, but he is not the only player on PSG’s extensive shortlist.

Les Parisiens are also targeting a move for Olympique Lyon youngster Bradley Barcola but will likely face competition from Manchester City.

The 20-year-old winger has emerged as one of the most promising youngsters in France, and PSG are determined to land his signature despite resistance from Lyon.

The French champions have overseen wholesale changes to their squad this summer, with a handful of new faces linking up at Parc des Princes.

Contract rebel Kylian Mbappe has also been reintegrated into the first team after a breakthrough in talks to extend his stay at the French capital.
