The inevitable took a step closer today as Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis confirmed that Ezequiel Lavezzi will be a Paris Saint-Germain player next season.
Speaking to Naples based radio station Radio Marte, (As reported by France Football) he confirmed the Argentine will sign for Les Parisiens next week when the transfer window opens. Although he refused to reveal the transfer fee, he did hint at a value around €31m.
This is a major coup for the football club and a real statement of intent. Lavezzi has been one of Carlo Ancelotti’s prime transfer targets and he has finally got his man it seems. He will bring a wealth of attacking flair but it remains to be seen how he adapts to PSG’s formation. More renown for being a supporting striker, the club only plays with one up top so it will be interesting to see how the coach sets up.
