The defensive sector of PSG is at the center of all the questions during this winter transfer window. With injuries and Hakimi's departure to the AFCON, reinforcement in defense becomes crucial for Luis Enrique. The Spanish coach seems to have found the ideal candidate.

The year 2024 is not starting in the best way for PSG's leaders and Luis Enrique. They must cope with the challenging comebacks of Nuno Mendes and Presnel Kimpembe, Milan Skriniar's injury and surgery, and Achraf Hakimi's departure for the 2024 AFCON.

Additionally, Nordi Mukiele might add to the list of problems for PSG's defense, given the recent reports linking him to Bayern Munich. In this context, the arrival of Lucas Beraldo alone to strengthen the Parisian backline may not be sufficient. While several names have been mentioned, Luis Enrique seems to have a specific candidate in mind.

Among the candidates for PSG's defense, according to Relevo, one name stands out as desired by Luis Enrique: Diego Llorente. The 30-year-old Spanish defender, currently under contract with Leeds United and loaned to AS Roma this season has become a regular starter under José Mourinho's guidance.

PSG's coach has previous experience with Diego Llorente from his time leading La Roja. However, the pursuit could prove complicated for PSG's executives, as they would need to terminate the ongoing loan at AS Roma, which might not align with Mourinho's plans, as he has considered Diego Llorente a key player since the start of the season.
