Paris Saint-Germain are close to signing Chelsea target Leandro Paredes from Zenit Saint Petersburg, according to Sky in Italy.
The midfielder is reportedly expected in Paris for a medical this afternoon, after a fee of around £35m was agreed.
Chelsea were understood to have agreed a deal in principle for the 24-year-old Argentina international earlier in the window as a replacement for Cesc Fabregas, who has joined Monaco.
Paredes joined Zenit from Roma for £20m in 2017 and scored seven goals in 43 games for the Russian side.
He’s been capped nine times by Argentina since his debut in 2017.
