PSG attempting to sign defender this January

As per L'Equipe, the Parisians will continue to make attempts to sign Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar in the ongoing transfer window.

The Slovakian centre-back's contract with the Nerazzurri expires in the summer. The Italian side are looking to get a fee for him in January rather than letting him go for free in the summer.

While PSG are looking to sign Skriniar, they don't want to overpay a player they could bring in for free in the summer. However, Inter Milan are unwilling to accept a fee lesser than their asking price of €20 million either.

Skriniar, 27, has played 242 games for Inter since joining the club from Sampdoria in 2017.

🚨🚨| Inter Milan are pushing to sell Skriniar this January, but the € 10M that PSG intend to offer is considered less. The Italian club wants at least the double of it (€ 20M) in order to sell Milan Skriniar in January. 🇸🇰🔎 [@Gazzetta_it]
