PSG Mercato: Three French internationals targeted by Paris SG
The leaders of PSG are determined to reinforce their squad to win the Champions League and are reportedly targeting the services of three French internationals.
Twelve years after the takeover of Paris Saint-Germain by Qatar Sports Investments, the goal of winning the Champions League has not been achieved. Despite the arrival of global football superstars like Neymar and Lionel Messi, the coveted trophy still eludes PSG. In this regard, the PSG management could opt for a new strategy this summer.
According to Le Parisien, Luis Campos and Nasser Al-Khelaïfi would like to recruit more French players this summer. PSG is targeting French internationals who are capable of handling pressure and likely to adapt better to the Parisian environment. The PSG leaders aim to enlist several players from the French national team during the summer transfer window to accompany Kylian Mbappé. Le Parisien reports that PSG is interested in Randal Kolo Muani, Khéphren Thuram, and Youssouf Fofana.
The Eintracht Frankfurt striker and the playmaker of AS Monaco are players from the Parisian region. Like Nordi Mukiele this year, their knowledge of the Parisian environment could facilitate their adaptation. At the same time, PSG believes that Khéphren Thuram has all the necessary qualities to establish himself at the club.
PSG Mercato: Kolo Muani won’t be easy to bring in.
This summer, Paris Saint-Germain could part ways with Lionel Messi. The departure of the Argentine international will allow PSG to reduce its wage bill and to be able to sign several players. In this regard, the capital club should have the means to sign Randal Kolo Muani, Khéphren Thuram, and Youssouf Fofana.
At the same time, PSG will have to reach agreements with OGC Nice, AS Monaco, and Eintracht Frankfurt. Monaco and Nice could accept the departure of Youssouf Fofana and Khéphren Thuram with a good offer. However, Paris Saint-Germain will have to find the right strategy to convince Eintracht Frankfurt to sell Randal Kolo Muani, one year after his arrival.
