PSG keen on Genoa youngster

Paris Saint-Germain are understood to be keeping close tabs on Genoa's highly-rated teenage striker Pietro Pellegri.

Pellegri's agent, Giuseppe Riso, has labelled the striker as a "young Zlatan Ibrahimovic" and revealed that he is being tracked by a number of clubs across Europe.

The teenager bust onto the scene this term, having netted twice in four outings, while he made history as he became the first 16-year-old to score twice in a major league fixture, scoring a brace in the 3-2 loss to Lazio.

Riso insists he hasn't had any official contact from potential suitors but he admits that he isn't surprised to hear reports claiming that PSG are big admirers.

"We are talking about a very powerful striker. Let's just say he has the characteristics of a young Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He's not just a revelation in Italy, but one of the best young European players," Riso said.

"Don’t forget, at the age of 16, he bagged a brace against Lazio. It's not surprising he has been linked with PSG, as many big European clubs are tracking him."
