Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Palhinha has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Paris Saint-Germain.
On the back of helping Sporting to the Primeira Liga title last season, Palhinha had been expected to move to a bigger club before the end of the summer window.
However, the 26-year-old remained in Portugal and he has since made 13 starts in the top flight and Champions League this season.
Despite Sporting failing to replicate the same level of performances, O Jogo claims that Palhinha could be in line for a high-profile exit next year.
The report suggests that PSG have identified the defensive-minded player as the ideal arrival in the centre of their midfield due to his strength and height.
Sporting remain in a strong position with regards to Palhinha’s future, the 10-cap international’s contract not expiring until 2025.
