AC Milan could be in a three-way battle with Juventus and Internazionale to sign Leandro Paredes in January, as reported by Calciomercato.
The 25-year-old Argentinian midfielder, who has previously represented AS Roma, is reportedly open to a move back to Italy from Paris Saint Germain, where he has struggled to get much game time – the structure of any deal made would likely be a loan with an obligation or option to buy.
Paredes’ last season in Serie A was the 2016/17 campaign, in which he made 15 league starts and 12 substitute appearances for Roma, scoring three goals and getting one assist, as per WhoScored.
He was certainly an effective player for them, making 1.8 tackles and 1.4 interceptions per game, averaging 1.6 key passes and completing 88.4% of his attempted passes.
That season was followed by a move to Zenit St. Petersburg before he then went to PSG during the 2018/19 campaign.
The 25-year-old made 14 starts and came on as a substitute twice last season, but this time around, has started just once and come off the bench three times.
The belief is that if he continues to be left out of the starting line up, he could seek a move back to Italy.
Milan should make a move for Paredes, as the Argentinian has shown in the past that he can be an effective player in Serie A.
They currently have six points from five games, so if things continue in this way, they will likely be looking to make recruits and the proposed structure of the deal could be beneficial for them.
