PSG is reportedly targeting Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic as a top priority for their attack. The 23-year-old Serbian, who has three years left on his Juventus contract, has garnered attention from PSG due mostly to his potential, according to Le Parisien.

With Juventus out of the next edition of the Champions League and after a year in which he struggled in the Turin side, Vlahovic might be interested in a change of team this summer in order to play at the top of the football levels.

Le Parisien warned that PSG "have not yet made an offer" for Vlahovic, whose value is "estimated to be around €70m." Nevertheless, initial indications suggest that the player is interested in joining PSG and become the leading striker of the squad.

PSG aim to build an attack around Kylian Mbappe if they can keep him around for a few more years. While other clubs like Bayern Munich and Chelsea are also in pursuit of strikers, PSG have strong arguments to secure Vlahovic's signature with the other two clubs focused more on Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen respectively.

Bringing in Vlahovic would not deter PSG's interest in Randal Kolo Muani, added Le Parisien. Muani, a versatile player, is viewed as a valuable addition to the squad and he's seen as someone capable of handling multiple roles and positions.

PSG is also engaged in negotiations with Manchester City to sign Bernardo Silva, with president Nasser Al-Khelaifi also committed to bringing more French players into the team in order to move on from the "bling-bling" era to a Frenchified one, as preferred by the honchos of the club operating from Qatar.

Another option in the case Vlahovic and other targets such as Harry Kane end up slipping through PSG's cracks is Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos, although he doesn't feel like a very realistic option of interest to PSG after all.

Dusan Vlahovic could instantly become the primary striker of the PSG squad and a surefire target to feed balls on offense. PSG are expected to face competition for his signature if he really is made available by Juventus, though, which could raise his price and force PSG to look into more affordable options such as Randal Kolo Muani, who could also fit the French player profile targeted by Qatar.
