Juventus are in talks with French champions Paris Saint-Germain over the possibility of sending Emre Can to Paris in a potential swap deal involving Leandro Paredes in the upcoming January transfer window.

The former Liverpool star has found game time hard to come by under Maurizio Sarri and has played just 272 minutes of Serie A football so far this season, as well as being omitted from Juve's 25-man Champions League squad. 

The Parisian club are believed to be keen to add some defensive solidity to their midfield, despite signing 30-year-old Idrissa Gana Gueye from Everton for a fee of £30m in summer.

Moreover, according to RMC (via the ​Daily Mail), PSG are interested in a straight swap deal, offering ​Juventus the services of Paredes in exchange for Can due to a lack of funds available in the upcoming window. 

These spending restrictions are believed to be due to a huge ​new bumper deal for Kylian Mbappé, with PSG keen to fend off interest from Europe's heavy hitters such as ​Real Madrid

Can has been the subject of ​interest from Premier League clubs, including ​Manchester United, who remain keen on the former ​Liverpool midfielder and may look to bring the German international back to England.

Juventus are currently stacked in midfield, having signed Aaron Ramsey and Adrian Rabiot on free transfers in the summer, with Can also falling behind the likes of Blaise Matuidi, Miralem Pjanic and Sami Khedira in the pecking order.

Joining Juventus from Liverpool in the summer of 2018 on a free transfer after running down his contract, Can enjoyed an impressive debut season with the Old Lady. The 25-year-old featured 37 times in all competitions, scoring four goals, assisting once and won his first Serie A trophy.
