PSG move to beat Chelsea to Zenit midfielder Leandro Paredes

PSG have moved to beat Chelsea to the signing of Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Leandro Paredes.

Sky Italia's Gianluca di Marzio reports the 24-year-old Argentina midfielder is wanted by Blues boss Maurizio Sarri, but PSG have made the first move by offering Zenit £31million.

PSG's opening offer is said to be around £9m short of Zenit's valuation.

Paredes generally operates as a defensive midfielder but has still chipped in with three goals and two assists in 15 Russian Premier League games this season.
