Chelsea have to meet £26m asking price to sign PSG creative star

November 5, 2017

According to the latest transfer news from French media outlets, Paris Saint-Germain attacking midfielder Javier Pastore has reportedly emerged as a potential target for Premier League duo Chelsea and Liverpool.

The 28-year-old Pastore has spent over six years at the Parc des Princes, scoring 38 goals in 213 matches in all competitions, but life at the France capital has changed since the arrivals of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Paris Saint-Germain must ensure that they satisfy FFP regulations, and as per the El Gol Digital, that has led to the Argentina international being made available for transfer at the start of 2018.

It has been reported that the South American playmaker has an asking price of £26m, a figure which is likely to alert some of the biggest clubs in world football.

Both Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp have been linked with Javier Pastore in the past, while Serie A giants Inter Milan have recently been credited with an interest in the 28-year-old maestro.

The former Palermo ace has only made two starts and two substitute outings for PSG in France’s top flight during the current campaign.

Alongside Pastore, another PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot is also firmly on the radar of Premier League clubs.
