Inter Milan has been regularly linked with Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Leandro Paredes in permanent transfer and swap deals. But now, the Italian side’s hopes of signing the Argentine midfielder may be quickly dashing away.
The Italian-based outlet Gazzetta dello Sport chronicled Inter’s pursuit of Paredes. The report made note of the club’s failed attempt at signing him over the recent summer transfer window, which on one proposed deal, it would have sent Marcelo Brozovic to PSG in a swap deal. But this proposed deal collapsed on the final day of the summer transfer window.
Now, Inter’s hopes at acquiring Paredes on a permanent deal revolves around Christian Eriksen. The report adds that Inter could offer Eriksen to PSG in exchange for Paredes, but the French side is deemed to be “hesitant” of such a swap deal. On the other hand, Inter could sell Eriksen and use all the funds garnered from such a deal to then sign Paredes. But at the moment, there is no suitor in line to sign Eriksen.
Thus, this leaves a loan deal as being the only option to whether Inter could add Paredes to its midfield rotation. The club is currently dealing with slight financial complications, which is why this route may be Inter’s only chance at signing the Argentine.
Overall, it may seem that the Paredes to Inter speculation may be nearing its endpoint with no deal coming to fruition for Antonio Conte’s side.
