Tuttosport: Milan consider Paqueta swap with PSG – Draxler, Paredes among the options

By Oliver Fisher -

Lucas Paqueta is trying to force a move away from AC Milan and a swap deal with Paris Saint-Germain could be a solution, a report claims.

It was confirmed on Thursday that the Brazil international would not be called up by head coach Stefano Pioli for Friday’s trip to face Brescia.

Sky Italia reported that Paqueta has asked to be left out of the squad, while they also confirmed the 22-year-old had tests carried out for a mild anxiety attack on Sunday after the win against Udinese.

According to Tuttosport – as cited by MilanNews.it – yesterday’s request by Paqueta not to be called up is a move by the player to force Milan to sell him.

The former Flamengo star wants to reunite with Leonardo at PSG, but the Rossoneri do not consider the €20million offered by the French side to be sufficient and are asking for for €10m more.

The solution could be an exchange involving some midfielders which have not been used extensively this season, such as Leandro Paredes, Ander Herrera or Julian Draxler.
