It's common knowledge that Paris Saint-Germain's Jese Rodriguez is unhappy at the club as he's on the verge of leaving the French champions.
The Spaniard's agent continued to fuel the rumours by claiming his client does not see his future at the club, saying; "What is certain is that Jese no longer sees his future at PSG"
The attacker has since been subject to intense transfer speculation linking him with an array of clubs including Premier League side Liverpool. A move to Merseyside is on the cards as Jese ponders all the offers.

La Liga duo Valencia and Las Palmas have also tabled offers. But the likelihood of the Spaniard returning to this hometown club remains doubtful due to his wage demands. And it appears Valencia are no longer in the running to snap him up following a meeting between the two sets of owners.
