The 19-year-old, who proved crucial in helping Pescara gain promotion to Serie A last season, is set to move to the Ligue 1 giants for a reported 14million euros transfer deal this summer.

"Verratti's intention is to say yes to PSG," Donato Di Campli told www.tuttomercatoweb.com.

"He should sign his contract either at the start of next week or at the end of this week."

Verratti has made 74 appearances for Pescara since making his debut with the Italian outfit at the age of 16.
