After the arrival of Georginio Wijnaldum, Achraf Hakimi, Sergio Ramos and Gianluigi Donnarumma, PSG now wants to clear its workforce to bring money into the club’s coffers. Leonardo is currently discussing an operation for 20 million euros.
Mercato PSG : Bayer interested in Thilo Kehrer
After Mitchel Bakker (21) and Alphonse Areola (28), a third player of the professional team of Paris Saint-Germain could change air in the coming days. Indeed, in search of cash to finance the rest of its mercato, PSG would like to see some elements leave. This is the case of Thilo Kehrer for whom Bayer Leverkusen has approached Leonardo. It must be said that with the arrival of Sergio Ramos and Achraf Hakimi the future is a little darker for the 24-year-old German international in terms of playing time.
Despite a contract running until 2023, the former Schalke 04 defender should leave this summer. The compatriot of Julian Draxler, who was a starter in the preparation friendly matches, seems to have played his last matches with PSG. Bayer Leverkusen has declared itself able to meet the requirements of Leonardo for his transfer.
Le Bayer capable de satisfaire le PSG ?
Indeed, Sky Sports confirms this Tuesday the interest of the German club for the protégé of Mauricio Pochettino as well as the amount expected by Paris Saint-Germain: between 15 and 20 million euros. “Sky can confirm a particular interest of Bayer Leverkusen Kehrer. A big plus of the player: he can be used versatile and can also play as a right back. He also has experience in the Bundesliga and internationally. Paris Saint-Germain wants about 15 to 20 million euros for the 24-year-old.
Leverkusen would have the funds for Kehrer with the transfer of Leon Bailey to Aston Villa for 35 million euros, “explains the sports media. Negotiations between the two clubs have not yet begun, but things should accelerate in the coming days. This is good news for Paris Saint-Germain, who are looking for cash to finalize the Paul Pogba deal.
