PSG planning to sign French players from Germany and Italy
PSG have identified one clear target for next summer in Tottenham forward and England international and captain Harry Kane. That, though, doesn't mean they are not looking into alternatives to bolster their roster.
With Lionel Messi getting shown the door and getting Harry Kane a tall task to complete, signing other players is going to be needed if PSG want to make a run at the Champions League next season. That's why they will be attempting to sign two forwards from Italy and Germany, revealed Le Parisien.
AC Milan sent Napoli home on Tuesday in the UCL, and that might lower Victor Osimhen's price next summer. The 24-year-old Nigeria international is of interest to PSG and Bayern Munich, and he might favor a move to one of the two clubs knowing Napoli couldn't even get past Milan this season.
Luis Campos knows Osimhen as he signed him for his Lille side back in 2019 before he moved to Serie A side Napoli later. The sporting advisor is now trying to repatriate him as he fits Kylian Mbappe's style and positioning on the field.
Other targets fit the "Young French" model that PSG is trying to establish going forward. That means that Randal Kolo Muani of Eintracht Frankfurt (24 years old) and Marcus Thuram of Borussia Mönchengladbach (25 years old) are also (believable) targets being tracked by PSG, according to Le Parisien.
PSG would like to add both Kolo Muani and Thuram to their ranks as they belong to the same 2018 generation that won the World Cup along with Mbappe, thus bolstering the offense of the Parisian team with national talent.
One final target of particular interest revealed by Le Parisien is Inter Milan forward Romelu Lukaku, who is 29 years old and on loan from Chelsea. He will return to London next season but the club is expected to sell him come July.
Whether young or developed, PSG better put on their work gloves and start working on next year's squad if they want to do something more than winning the lesser Ligue 1.
