RUMOURS: PSG to beat Man Utd and Chelsea to Serie A striker

The Italy international has long been a target for the Premier League duo but the Ligue 1 champions have made the first move over a potential transfer

Paris Saint-Germain have made contract in regards to a move for Fiorentina striker Federico Bernardeschi, reports TalkSport.

Manchester United and Chelsea have long-standing interest in the Serie A forward, who has struck nine goals in 18 appearances in the Italian top flight this season, but the French champions have made the first move.

Bernardeschi, who has seven senior caps for the Italian national side, has scored 19 goals for Fiorentina in his 79 appearances to date.

PSG boss Unai Emery is looking to ease the club’s reliance on Edinson Cavani, whose 18 goals in 17 Ligue 1 games have not been enough for the Parisian giants to reclaim top spot from leaders Nice.
