PSG to sign Roma full-back Alessandro Florenzi on loan

Paris Saint-Germain have agreed a deal to sign Alessandro Florenzi on loan with an option to buy from Roma.

Gianluca Di Marzio says the Italian international will fly to Paris this evening for a medical and contract signing.

Florenzi, 29, spent the second half of last season on loan at Valencia and has been subject to interest from Everton.

He will reinforce PSG’s right-back position after Thomas Meunier left the club to join Borussia Dortmund.

PSG had been looking at Hector Bellerin but refused to meet Arsenal’s asking price.

Florenzi is Rome born and bred but his loan moves are motivated by international ambitions.

He hopes to be part of Italy’s Euro 2021 squad and regular game time will help his chances.

Under Paulo Fonseca, Florenzi was not getting enough minutes to satisfy him, leading to his temporary switch to Valencia last season.

11/9 UPDATE:

Florenzi’s loan move to PSG has now been made official.
