We always say that there is seldom smoke without fire in the transfer market and, even though there has been no official word from club or player about a move, the rumours persist that Ezequiel Lavezzi will move on this summer.
The über-rich PSG seem to have a constantly and quickly changing group of playing staff and Lavezzi could find himself surplus to requirements, even though he’s only been at the club for a couple of years.
With Angel di Maria reportedly close to a move PSG will need to balance the books and Lavezzi could make way.
English media outlet The Metro states today that Juventus is the preferred destination for the player:
…according to The Daily Star, Lavezzi would prefer to move to Juventus over Liverpool if he is forced to leave PSG this summer.
The 29 year old did of course have a great time in Italy at Napoli between 2007-12 where he scored 48 goals in 188 games.
He’s had a decent time of it in PSG scoring 23 goals in 90 appearances. But his game is based more than just on goals. He’s a top schemer with great creative instincts who will generate as many assists for others as he scores goals. He’s also represented his country, Argentina, on 37 occasions.
Let’s take a look at the lad in action. Juventus fans: are you keen on the player and would he get straight into the first XI?
