Candreva 'very flattered' by Paris Saint-Germain interest

Lazio attacker Antonio Candreva has admitted that he is "very flattered" by Paris Saint-Germain's reported interest in his services.

The Italy international only signed a new deal at the Stadio Olimpico last October that binds him to the Biancocelesti until 2018.

However, PSG are said to be keen to lure Candreva to the Parc des Princes this summer and the 27-year-old has admitted that he would jump at the opportunity to join the Ligue 1 champions.

"Paris would be a great option for me," he told Telefoot. "They are one of Europe's great clubs.

"I'm very flattered by PSG's interest. We will see in the next few days what can happen with PSG."

Lazio president Claudio Lotito stated at the end of last month that there is no chance of Candreva being allowed to leave the Italian capital, but it has been reported in the Italian press that the Serie A side would be willing to sell the Azzurri for £24.3 million (€30 million).
