According to Le Parisien, Palermo’s Italian international Federico Balzaretti is set for a move to Paris Saint-Germain in the January transfer window.
Director of football Leonardo has been in discussions with their president Maurizio Zamparini, whom he has a close friendship with, regarding a deal for the 29-yeaar-old.
Zamparini had said last week that he would not stand in the way of the player if the French club came calling.
With Siaka Tiene due to play in the African Cup of Nations after Christmas, the left-back is seen as readymade replacement to fill the void.
If he does join the club, he will become the third arrival in as many months from the Sicilian club, after Salvatore Sirigu and Javier Pastore.
