Arsenal to sign PSG midfielder instead of Tielemans?
Arsenal could pursue the services of Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Leandro Paredes in the next transfer window.
The Argentine joined Juventus on loan from Les Parisiens last summer, but he has played just 790 minutes for them.
The Bianconeri are open to terminating his deal in January and reports claim that Arsenal could attempt to sign him.
Paredes has been on the Gunners radar since his time at Roma. They attempted to sign him three years ago from Zenit.
If Paredes is available in January, it is claimed that the Gunners could propose a loan deal with an option to buy.
The north London side are also interested in Leicester City's Youri Tielemans, but he may not be available this winter.
Tielemans will enter the final six months of his deal in January, but the Foxes are adamant that they won't sell him.
Paredes has now been identified as Tielemans' alternative. The Gunners could still sign the Belgian on a free next summer.
