Ezequiel Lavezzi is ready to quit Paris Saint-Germain for a move back to Italy, according to the Express.
The Argentine winger is into his final year at the Parc des Princes and has already declared he will not extend his stay beyond next summer.
The PSG hierarchy, though, would rather sell Lavezzi during the January transfer window for a bargain price of £3.5 million rather than lose him on a free next summer.

Lavezzi moved to the French giants in 2012 for a fee of €26.5 million from Napoli, signing a four-year deal after being pursued by several heavyweights across Europe.
Currently in his fourth season with the club, the 30-year-old has made 154 appearances, scoring 34 goals, but has struggled to consistently feature this term.
His agent, Alejandro Mazzoni, has reportedly left for Italy to hold talks with Juventus and Inter Milan over a potential move.
The Old Lady have struggled in front of goal this season and believe Lavezzi could be the solution to their problems. Manager Massimiliano Allegri is ready to pay the asking price.
Inter Milan, on the other hand, are reluctant to pay any transfer fee, preferring a loan move at the turn of the year with a free transfer in the summer.
PREMIER LEAGUE INTEREST
The news will come as a blow to Premier League trio Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham, who were all rumoured to be monitoring his situation and poised to make a move in January.
With an array of skills, Lavezzi is astute at playing on either wings. His pace, creativity and dribbling, alongside his work ethic, have long been praised for club and country.
