Lo Celso links up with PSG

Giovani Lo Celso is eager to prove himself at Paris Saint-Germain after arriving at the Ligue 1 club on Wednesday.

The 20-year-old Argentine was signed by the French giants on 26 July 2016, on a five-year for around £8.5m, but remained at Rosario Central on loan after representing his country at the Olympics in Rio.

Lo Celso scored a fine goal in his last match for Canallas in a 2-0 win over Belgrano in the Primera Division having helped the side reach the final of the Copa Argentina – where they lost 4-3 to River Plate.

Ahead of linking up with his new teammates, the attacking midfielder said: "As a player, you always dream of playing. 

"There are great players at PSG, and I'll train as hard as I can in order to win some game time. I can't wait to join the team and do my part."

Despite currently occupying third place in Ligue 1, Lo Celso is confident PSG can make up the ground on leaders Nice.

He added: "There is still a long way to go in the league. And with the players they have, PSG will get there."

Lo Celso also explained his best position and how he sees himself slotting into the PSG team.

"In Argentina, I was playing as a playmaker, but I can also play in a 4-3-3," he explained. 

"I'll do what the coach asks me to."
