Paris Saint-Germain reportedly emerge as the favourites to secure a deal for Corinthians youngster Gabriel Moscardo.

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly viewed as the current favourites to sign Corinthians midfielder Gabriel Moscardo.

Despite being just 18 years of age, Moscardo has already established himself as a first-team player with the Brazilian giants.

A total of 23 appearances have been made in the centre of the pitch, leading to the teenager gaining admirers from across Europe.

Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Barcelona have all been credited with an interest in Moscardo, who has a contract with Corinthians until July 2026.

There is a scenario where Moscardo could continue his development in his homeland, where he is more likely to earn regular game time in the short term.

However, while Moscardo has recently insisted that his focus remains on helping his current club, the likelihood is that a deal will eventually be struck with a top European club.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, PSG have recently emerged as competition to the clubs already mentioned and have already made their move.

PSG are seemingly ready to open formal negotiations with their Corinthians counterparts in a bid to get a deal over the line as soon as possible.

Football advisor Luis Campos is said to have been monitoring the progress of Moscardo for a number of months ahead of PSG becoming contenders for his signature.

The French giants tinkered with their transfer approach last summer, mixing signing prospects and younger players with acquiring the services of established stars.

Moscardo would be signed with the future in mind, yet Luis Enrique has not shied away from fielding youthful talent in the senior ranks since his arrival at Parc des Princes.

Romano adds that Chelsea have no immediate plans to make a fresh effort to sign Moscardo, likely a consequence of already been stacked with young central midfielders.

As it stands, a potential fee for Moscardo has not been suggested, but Corinthians are unlikely to be against negotiating a realistic fee with PSG after a league campaign where they currently sit just 14th in the Brasileiro standings.
