PSG Feminine interested in Inter Milan and Levante players
By Hidayah Ali
Paris Saint-Germain Feminine is looking to recruit some big names this summer. With the transfer window just a few weeks away, the club is expected to let a few players go, such as Sarah Bouhaddi and Kheira Hamraoui, but also to extend others' time with the side while adding more pieces to the roster.
The club and the supporters have had a sour ending to the current season, as they could not add any trophies to their cabinet, even though they stayed in contention for two until the end.
Players such as youngster Esmee Brugts and Tatiana Pinto have already been linked with potential moves to PSG in recent weeks, and new information has been slow to leak.
However, according to Le Parisien, PSG could be initiating talks with Inter Milan's Tabitha Chawinga.
The 27-year-old is this season's Serie A's top scorer, bagging 23 goals and providing 8 assists in 22 games to date.
Chawinga would be added to the likes of Kadidatou Diani, Marie-Antoinette Katoto, and Ramona Bachmann, who have been the club's leading goal-scorers over the past few seasons.
With Paris' goal-scoring issue being the cause of their downfall this season, having natural scorers in their squad is a must in case of the absence of Katoto or Diani, as was the case this season.
The Malawian player is on loan at Inter from Wuhan Jianghan University FC of China. Her loan with the Italian club ends on June 30th, and she will then be able to negotiate a move to another club.
The forward would be a great addition to the Parisian club and such a move would open a tremendous new chapter in Tabitha's career after she proved herself this season in a top European league and made a name for herself at Inter.
PSG have also expressed interest in a Levante player, Viola Calligaris, per Benjamin Quarez.
The Switzerland international plays the right-back position, and this transfer could potentially be linked to the expected departure of Ashley Lawrence, who looks almost set to join Chelsea.
Calligaris has been part of Levante's side since 2020 and she has made 46 appearances for them while scoring only one goal to date.
PSG have some big shoes to fill with Lawrence no longer on the club's roster if she inevitably ends up at Chelsea. Viola Calligaris looks to be the only player to take over her duties at the moment, but that would take a transfer from Spain to France if PSG want to have a solid replacement for the departing Lawrence.
