PSG find itself immersed in an important endeavor these days with the incoming business of the transfer market completed but most of the sales they had planned for still to be sealed.

Following Neymar's move to Al-Hilal, Abdou Diallo's transfer to Al-Arabi, and Djeidi Gassama's shift to Sheffield Wednesday, the Parisian club has now made official the departure of Leandro Paredes to AS Roma along with that of Renato Sanches (on loan).

However, some figures, including Julian Draxler and Georginio Wijnaldum, the two of them also returning to Paris this summer following spells away on loan, remain in a quandary, with their exit routes very murky as no teams have shown interest in the two disgruntled players.

Notably, Wijnaldum's situation beckons attention. According to L'Equipe, "potential suitors have held back, possibly deterred by his injury record."

The Dutch midfielder faced a fractured tibia during his loan spell at AS Roma last season, and his return to form never really arrived. Wijnaldum featured in 23 games starting just 12 of them.

While Wijnaldum has voiced his willingness to stay in Paris if PSG give him the option, the sentiment doesn't seem reciprocated, as clarified by L'Equipe.

Despite being under contract through June 2024, the 32-year-old declined propositions from Turkey and the Netherlands earlier this summer.

The looming question is whether fresh avenues will materialize for the former Liverpool player before the transfer window closes on Sep. 1st.
