BBC Sport also reported Juan Bernat will be joining the 29-year-old in Paris after completing his transfer from Bayern Munich on Friday.

Choupo-Moting signed a two-year contract with the French champions after agreeing to terminate his deal with the Championship club.

The Hamburg-born striker moved to Stoke from Schalke in 2017 but couldn't help the Potters avoid relegation from the Premier League last season.

He scored five goals and provided five assists in England's top division last term, making 30 appearances.

Per BBC Sport, Bernat arrived in Paris for a £13.5 million fee and has signed a three-year deal with the French giants.
