Paris Saint-Germain could rekindle their interest in Juventus defender Mattia De Sciglio in January, said reports from Italy
After enduring an injury-hit start to his career in Turin, the 27-year-old has tumbled down the pecking order, and a January exit could be on the cards.
The Parisians tried to sign the right-back during the summer, but their attempts came a cropper, as the Italians decided against selling the out-of-form defender.
Although the Bianconeri refused to turn their backs on De Sciglio following the breakups with Joao Cancelo and Leonardo Spinazzola, the former Italy international has registered just 105 minutes of top-flight football this term.

The club are looking for a fullback who can play on both sides of defense. Leonardo tried to sign him last summer, but still remains in contact with the player. https://t.co/WRGPUPgZjw
According to the Football Italia, PSG are ready to offer the ex-AC Milan player an escape route from the Allianz Stadium and will make a new attempt in the winter transfer window.
The reigning Ligue 1 holders are reportedly exploring two options to get the deal over the line, with one including a swap deal involving the Belgian full-back Thomas Meunier.
Another possibility for Thomas Tuchel’s side is to approach the Serie A heavyweights with a €10m offer, which is €2m short of what they forked out to take De Sciglio away from the San Siro in 2017.
