Paredes has now chosen to join PSG who were keen to bolster their midfield with a specialist defensive midfielder as they prepare for a push for the Champions League title.
Paredes joined Zenit from Roma for £20m in 2017 and scored seven goals in 43 games for the Russian side.
He’s been capped nine times by Argentina since his debut in 2017.
