French giants Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly reached an agreement with Zenit St. Petersburg over the signing of Leandro Paredes in a deal worth over €40m.

The midfielder was linked with Chelsea earlier in the January transfer window as a potential replacement for Cesc Fabregas who left Stamford Bridge for AS Monaco.

According to RMC Sport's Mohamed Bouhafsi, PSG have now stolen a march on the Premier League side and have struck a deal with Zenit over the Argentinian.

The deal for Paredes is expected to be around €40m, plus €5m in bonuses related to both the 24-year-old's and club's performances.

The former AS Roma star is reportedly set to undergo a medical with PSG at the Aspire Centre in Doha ahead of signing a four-and-a-half year contract with the Ligue 1 side.

The midfielder started his career in his native Argentina with Boca Juniors, before heading to the Serie A to join Chievo for the 2013/2014 season.

After an impressive stint with Roma a year later, Paredes left Italy to join Russian side Zenit for €23m in the summer of 2017, and has been a mainstay of the side since his arrival.

Paredes has enjoyed arguably his most productive campaign of his career this season, with three goals and two assists in his 15 Russian Premier League appearances, while he has added a further goal in the Europa League.
