According to a report from French media outlet Le Parisien, Liverpool ace James Milner has emerged as a shock transfer target for Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

The 33-year-old is out of contract with the Reds this summer, and should he fail to agree terms on an extension, he will be available on a free transfer after the Champions League final.

 

Milner joined Liverpool from Manchester City on a free transfer in the summer of 2015, and he has proven to be an excellent signing for the Merseyside outfit, racking up 22 goals and 36 assists in 176 appearances in all competitions.

And now French publication Le Parisien claims that should Milner not sign a new contract with Liverpool, PSG could swoop in to sign him on a free, with six first-team stars set to be shown the exit door at the Parc des Princes this summer.

The experienced Englishman, who currently earns £120k-a-week according to Sportek, is an important player for the Reds, especially considering how versatile he is, so Jurgen Klopp will surely be keen to tie him down to a new deal.

And with PSG's alleged interest in Milner now being reported, Liverpool might just be forced into taking action earlier than they had anticipated.
