Bad news for Arsenal and Liverpool as target reveals favoured destination

Paris Saint-Germain forward Ezequiel Lavezzi has revealed he is hoping to play for Barcelona, the Express reports.

The Argentine is out of contract at the end of the season, and has been linked with a number of top clubs across the continent as a result.

Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are all said to be holding an interest in his signature, but his intention is to play for Barcelona.

Lavezzi said: “I’ll be calm and I’ll try to make the best decision. Rumours are normal because my contract expires. We’ll see.

“I won’t deny it would be a dream to play at Barca, although I’m now playing at a team that is almost as good.”

The 30 year-old will be allowed to talk to European clubs outside of France from January about pre-contract terms, ahead of a proposed free transfer at the end of his deal, but the French champions may opt to try and sell him in January, at risk of losing him for free six months later.

PSG are said to be willing to discuss his sale for as little as £3.5 Million.
