The Lowdown: Paredes value plummets…
The Argentine’s value has plummeted by nearly £23 million in the last few seasons and it is believed that Paredes may be heading on his way out of Paris.
Spurs and transfer chief Fabio Paratici, looking to back manager Antonio Conte, have been credited with an interest with Moretto sharing his own update.
The Latest: Moretto makes Parades claim…
According to the reporter’s source, speaking to ‘All About Argentina’, Tottenham are ‘attentive’ over signing Paredes as they seriously enter the mix among ‘many clubs’.
It is believed that the 27-year-old is seriously wanted by the Lilywhites coming as he ‘could leave PSG’ – but nothing is advanced at this moment in time.
The Verdict: Get it done?
Despite a drop in value, Paredes has enjoyed some spells of bright form under Mauricio Pochettino at the Parc des Princes.
Former PSG midfielder Fabrice Pancrate raved over the South American last year, branding him ‘super strong’, ‘smart’, ‘aggressive’ and ‘perfect’ – drawing particular attention to his partnership with Marco Verratti in midfield (Le Parisien via PSG Talk).
Over his 15 Ligue 1 appearances this season, Paredes has also averaged a pretty impressive 95.8% pass accuracy – a far greater number than any Spurs regular under Conte in the Premier League (WhoScored).
An assured operator in front of the back four, he could come as a brilliant alternative to the likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Rodrigo Bentancur and Oliver Skipp as part of a solid rotation.
