Candreva 'flattered' by PSG link

Antonio Candreva will play for Italy at the World Cup after an impressive campaign for Lazio in which he scored 12 goals.

Lazio midfielder Antonio Candreva has told TF1 he is "flattered" to be linked with a move to Paris-Saint Germain this summer.

Currently on duty with Italy at the World Cup, the 27-year-old's future at Lazio is looking uncertain.

Juventus are also reportedly interested in the former Udinese midfielder, but a move to the Ligue 1 champions appears to be more enticing for Candreva.

"Paris would certainly be a great option for me," Candreva told France's TF1 television. "They are currently one of the biggest clubs in Europe.

"I'm very flattered to be one of PSG's targets. We'll just have to see if things can go any further with Paris Saint-Germain."

Candreva only joined Lazio last summer, in a part-ownership deal with Udinese.

The Biancocelesti are understood to have already reached an agreement with their Serie A rivals to take full ownership of one of their most influential players last season for an estimated fee of nine million euros, although he may only return to Rome to collect his belongings after the World Cup if PSG firm up their interest.

Lazio's failure to qualify for Europe next season could convince their No. 87 to assess his options, and there are likely to be many if he can reproduce his club form for his country in Brazil.

Candreva was Lazio's top scorer with 12 goals in 37 appearances last season, five goals more than forward Miroslav Klose.
