In search of attackers to compensate for Kylian Mbappe's departure, PSG could turn to a former homegrown talent, Kingsley Coman.

PSG aims to accelerate in the coming weeks in the transfer market to strengthen Luis Enrique's squad for the 2024-2025 season. So far, only goalkeeper Matvey Safonov has been recruited by the Parisian leaders.

For other areas of the game, many names are linked with the Rouge & Bleu, such as Leny Yoro, Lutsharel Geertruida, and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. To bolster the attacking sector and provide competition on the wings, PSG's board might bring back Kingsley Coman (28 years old).

Kingsley Coman targeted by PSG for major summer transfer

A product of PSG's academy, the French international, currently competing at Euro 2024 with France, left for Juventus Turin in 2014 and has been with Bayern Munich since 2015. Following last season's recruitment of Lucas Hernandez, the reigning French champions could add another French international from the Bavarian club.

According to Sky Sport Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg, PSG has set sights on Kingsley Coman to strengthen their attacking lineup. Discussions have reportedly already taken place with the player's entourage. Under contract with Bayern until 2027, the 28-year-old Titi has been granted permission to leave this summer.

The right winger is valued at €40-50 million by his club and currently earns a gross salary of €15 million per year with Bayern Munich, as highlighted by Florian Plettenberg.

This season, Kingsley Coman has faced physical setbacks (knee ligament injury and abductor tear), causing him to miss a total of 21 matches. Despite these recurring injuries, PSG's medical staff has successfully managed similar cases with Lucas Hernandez and Ousmane Dembele, who were often injured at their previous clubs before joining PSG.
