Report: PSG sets asking price for Tottenham transfer target

By Eddie Razo -

The midfield will be an area of the squad that Tottenham will be looking to upgrade this summer. Over the past few weeks, various players have been connected to the north London club; one of them is Paris Saint-Germain’s Leandro Paredes

As noted by La Gazzetta dello Sport, PSG is open to selling the 27-year-old this summer. Paredes is under contract for another year, but the capital club has put the price on the Argentine ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Italian media outlet adds that Les Parisiens has set a €15 million asking price for Paredes, who plays most of the time as a defensive midfielder. Along with the connection to Tottenham, the midfielder is also drawing interest from Inter Milan. 

Paredes spent some time in Italy during his stints at four Serie A clubs, including one season with AS Roma. As a result, Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici would have seen the PSG midfielder play, so it comes as no surprise why Spurs has an interest.

Over the past year, Tottenham has purchased two midfielders in Pape Matar Sarr and Rodrigo Bentancur, so Paredes could be added to this group if Spurs indeed decide to pursue him.

JWP is not going to start ahead of Hojberg or Rodrigo and how far has his overall leadership taken Southampton. I see the sentiment and until we get the romantic signings out our heads the better. We need a bonifide triggerman to start next to Betancur to keep Harry in the pivot. And further more if we look at the current front line in Conte’ 343 who makes way? I see flashes and brilliance not a guy that runs the show piling on the assists so what happen to Skipp’s development. We cannot have a positional laden squad of 6 players taking up spaces and more than likely surplus to requirenent. Until Locelso, Tanguy and Winks are all sold bringing in another player that is not going to be penciled in, is a waste of money. As a young player I would totally advise him against signing to a team where he would not be a shoe In starter. We suffering the same with Harry Kane. No one is good enough to replace him and no one wants to come sit behind him. Conte has designated Stevie as Kane backup. He has not substituted Harry directly in a game since. Harry has played every minute. The point is what do you do with Hojberg who will run all game and Rodrigo who seem a mainstay in the middle of the park. I understand competition, but we are not winners of anything for players to look at the situation and be willing to sacrifice to come continue winning. We need a revamp of the team to offload the excesses at certain position then form a proper squad with 2 deep at each position. Right now we have a collection of players not suited to play the stapled 343 formation. Do we need a dead ball person. Yes, but if that is all they bring. No thank you.

He’ll come at a cost but James Ward-Prowse is the player we need. His set piece delivery as well as from open space is a thing we have missed since Eriksen was with us.

When was the last time we scored direct from a free kick? I think we have one of the worst goals from set pieces in the league too. Definitely something to work on.

I love me some JWP as much as the next guy but he’s only leaving Soton for a big offer from a big club, neither of which describe Spurs.

“Who’s enquiring? Ah Daniel Levy eh – increase the price by 20% because he’ll try and reduce it by the same amount at the end of negotiations”.
