The arrival of Lionel Messi at Paris Saint-Germain has led to reports that Mauro Icardi's place in the squad is under threat, with the Argentinian along with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe automatic starters as the front three.

PSG are well aware of their riches in attack and reportedly are willing to sell Icardi in the summer transfer window, should they get a reasonable offer for the striker. As per Calcio Mercato, Juventus are interested in signing the Argentinian, but are currently only looking to get him on a season-long loan deal.

The Ligue 1 side for their part are keen to recover the €50million they paid for the striker, and are looking to sell him outright - though they could change their mind if Juventus will include a clause of the option to buy following the loan spell.

The move would help PSG lower their wage bill, while also ensuring that the player himself will be able to get some much needed gametime under his belt - with the striker looking good in the pre-season fixtures that the club played.

The 28-year-old who moved to France, first on loan in 2019 and then on a permanent transfer in 2020, has so far made 65 appearances for the club, scoring 35 goals and winning five trophies so far with them.
