The arrival of Lucas Hernandez at PSG, according to L'Equipe, is "imminent" following an agreement between the Bayern defender and both clubs last Thursday.

The France international's arrival is just a matter of hours away, folks. Hernandez was, in fact, scheduled to undergo a medical examination on Friday at a clinic facilitated by PSG before finalizing his contract with the capital club.

While the duration of his contract at PSG has yet to be officially confirmed, sources have suggested that it could be of either three or five years. That's the information obtained and revealed by L'Equipe on Friday, at least.

The leading French newspaper also revealed that the pursuit of Lucas Hernandez has been ongoing for quite some time, with a preliminary agreement reached between the parties several weeks ago, going all the way back to the time when both PSG and Bayern met in the last-16 of the Champions League last March.

It's believed that the bulk of the negotiations was done throughout the development of the Roland Garros tennis tournament earlier this month between Nasser al-Khelaifi and Jan-Christian Dreesen, presidents of PSG and Bayern respectively.

As revealed by L'Equipe, PSG and Bayern discussed both the transfer of Hernandez as well as the potential fee to be paid in the event of Paris signing Julian Nagelsmann to manage the team.

The German club requested an initial payment of €50m for Hernandez. However, with the player refusing to extend his expiring deal (June 2024) and PSG knowing his willingness to join Paris, PSG never really was going to pay that much money. It's believed that a final deal has been agreed in the €40-45m ballpark, although it might rise up to €50m with bonuses.

Despite concerns about his fitness due to a serious injury and prolonged absence, Luis Campos, PSG's sports advisor, remains confident in the player's abilities and what he can offer to the Parisian team.

According to reports, Camps was the main instigator of Hernandez's recruitment as he sees the defender as a valuable asset in a three-man defense, also able to play in the left-back position.

However, the arrival of Luis Enrique might send all of those visions into the trash can as Enrique's always favored a four-man defense. According to L'Equipe, Enrique never got in touch with Campos to approve this transfer.
