PSG finds itself in the market for a number 9, and their recent displays against Le Havre and Al-Nassr have intensified the pursuit of a forward capable of fixing the team's struggles to score.
The capital club has been exploring various attacking options, including Randal Kolo Muani, Victor Osimhen, Goncalo Ramos, Dusan Vlahovic, and the ever-elusive Harry Kane, but a new target has emerged of late with PSG submitting an official offer for Atalanta's Rasmus Hojlund.
The Danish forward is under contract at Atalanta through June 2027. Hojlund's Serie A record shows promise, with nine goals in 32 games, making him a highly sought-after prospect among top European clubs, most prominently Man Utd.
The Red Devils have reportedly made an offer and have secured an agreement in principle with Atalanta. The Premier League club appears to have a slight edge in the race for Hojlund's signature, with the player reportedly leaning toward a move to Old Trafford and joining the Premier League.
Atalanta, though, is not willing to part ways with Hojlund easily. The Italian club has set a price tag of around €80m. Both PSG and Manchester United have made offers in the range of €50m, way short of the Italian team's valuation of the player.
As the transfer window progresses, the battle to secure Rasmus Hojlund's services continues to unfold, but it's promising to know that PSG have submitted an official offer as confirmed by David Ornstein of The Athletic on Thursday, July 27, to battle Man Utd for the acquisition of the young striker.
Whether PSG can successfully entice Harry Kane or turn their focus to securing the emerging Danish talent remains to be seen.
There are still a few weeks of preseason and the transfer market left, so there is still plenty of time for PSG to boost their squad ahead of next season.
