Tottenham Hotspur have received a boost in their pursuit of Leandro Paredes.
According to the Italian media outlet CalcioMercatoWeb, Juventus is looking to raise funds in order to make a summer bid for Chelsea’s Mason Mount. And, rather than using his purchase clause, the Italian giants are considering returning the Argentine midfielder back to PSG at the end of the season.
This will undoubtedly please Fabio Paratici and Antonio Conte, who were rumoured to be interested in signing the 28-year-old during the summer transfer window before his eventual loan move to Turin.
With Juventus not looking to sign the midfielder on a permanent basis and PSG keen on parting ways with the midfielder, Tottenham could be presented with a second chance to sign Paredes next summer.
Rodrigo Bentancur has been one of Paratici’s best signings since joining the club, and if the Italian sporting director is able to pair the Uruguay international with Paredes in the heart of Conte’s side heading into the next season, the 50-year-old will appear to have formed an extremely lethal midfield duo.
Paredes is having a difficult time in Paris. He has made over a century of PSG appearances. However, he has never been a consistent starter for the club. He has never appeared in more than 21 league games in a season. And eventually fell way down the pecking order before securing a move to Juventus on loan last summer.
A move to Spurs could be beneficial for both the player and the club. Spurs will get a solid midfielder to partner Bentancur while the Argentine will get an opportunity to get regular playing time for one of the Premier League’s top teams.
