Paris Saint-Germain will see several loanees returning this summer transfer window. With one year left on his contract, Leandro Paredes is returning to the French capital. Nonetheless, he might not be staying long.
Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reported that Lazio is expressing keen interest in securing the services of Paredes. This move aims to bolster Lazio’s midfield options. Additionally, PSG is willing to negotiate a transfer at a reasonable price for the Argentine.

Paredes spent the 2022-23 season on loan to Juventus, so perhaps playing in Serie A caught the eye of Lazio. Should the transfer materialize, Paredes would join a club playing in the UEFA Champions League next season.
Lazio recognizes the significance of strengthening key areas, with midfield identified as a priority. With ambitions of challenging for a Serie A title and leaving a mark in Europe, having a quality midfield is a must.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup winner has stated his desire to stay at PSG with new manager Luis Enrique arriving. However, it will be up to the Spanish tactician to decide whether Paredes has a place on his squad.
