The Inter boss is looking at other midfield options, with Argentine international Paredes one of them.
The insistence of PSG sporting director Leonardo for centre-back Skriniar has led to the possibility of a swap deal.
During Leonardo’s latest request for Skriniar, 25, Inter asked for Paredes and cash in return.
PSG and Inter have very good relations from their recent dealings for Mauro Icardi.
This could lead to the Parisians signing Skriniar, who they view as an ideal replacement for Thiago Silva.
But Inter want Paredes in return, which PSG must now think about.
Paredes, 26, joined PSG from Zenit for €40m in January 2019, but he has struggled for regular starts in Paris.
