PSG thinking about signing a left-back in January to bolster depth


As the winter transfer window approaches, PSG is already making preparations to bolster its squad. A key area under consideration for reinforcement is the left-back position, currently held by Lucas Hernandez due to the long-term injury of Nuno Mendes.

Nuno Mendes, dealing with persistent hamstring issues, is set to be sidelined until March after undergoing surgery. In light of this, PSG is reportedly exploring options to secure a left-back in the upcoming transfer window.

Layvin Kurzawa, not part of Luis Enrique's plans, makes the recruitment of a new player in this position highly likely. Reports even suggest that a loan with a purchase option is under consideration if only to add some depth to the current squad of PSG.

Furthermore, PSG is not limiting its aim to just a left-back. The possibility of signing a midfielder is also being discussed, given the financial flexibility resulting from the departures of Sergio Ramos, Neymar, Lionel Messi, and Marco Verratti.

With more potential departures on the horizon, PSG is in a position to make some moves.

Carlos Soler, reportedly drawing interest from Premier League clubs such as Brighton and Aston Villa, has been reported as a possible departure.

Other candidates for winter exits include Hugo Ekitike and Layvin Kurzawa. However, the former refused to go last summer even with PSG having already accepted an offer for him, while the latter didn't really gather any interest from other teams.
