Lazio eyeing PSG forward
Le Parisien is reporting that Serie A high-flyers Lazio are weighing up summer move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Jean-Christophe Bahebeck.
The 22-year-old is one of just a handful of first team players at Parc des Princes that have come through club’s youth academy, but it appears he is set for a summer exit.
Bahebeck was mostly restricted to substitute appearances this season, starting mere three Ligue 1 fixtures, and he may decide to leave in search of first team football.
According to Le Parisien, Italian giants Lazio are keen on his signature and are expected to make a move in the summer transfer window.
Bahebeck scored his first two league goals for the Saints this season, while showing some promise during loan spells with Troyes and Valenciennes.
Paris Saint-Germain all but secured the league title by hammering Guingamp, and they are 4/9 to defeat Montpellier next weekend.
