Paris Saint-Germain are poised to sign midfielder Giovani Lo Celso from Rosario Central, according to L’Equipe. As we mentioned 10 days ago, Liverpool, along with a host other top European clubs including Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Juventus, Roma and Manchester City, were reported to be interested in the player but the signing of the youngster is close to being officially announced by the French club.
Lo Celso will sign a 5 year deal at the Parc des Princes, reports the newspaper. He will cost approximately €9.2million and is seen as one of Argentina’s brightest young stars.
The 20 year old has been likened to his soon-to-be club team mate Angel Di Maria. Di Maria also started his football career at Rosario and like the PSG star, Lo Celso has a very strong left foot.For his Argentine club, Lo Celso plays as a playmaker in an attacking midfield role, making 12 appearances since the beginning of 2016, scoring one goal and providing five assists.
