PSG continue their active pursuit of attacking reinforcements, with recent arrivals including Goncalo Ramos and Ousmane Dembele. The club's ambitions go beyond these signings, however, with interest now directed towards Ligue 1 side Montpellier's striker, Elye Wahi.
After an impressive 2022/23 season with Montpellier, Wahi has become one of the focal points of this summer's transfer window drama with recent leaks linking him to PSG. His remarkable performances yielded 19 goals and 6 assists in 33 Ligue 1 games and they helped him garner attention from across Europe.
Chelsea, in particular, made an offer of €28m to Montpellier, but the bid was rejected by the French side. The Blues attempted to sway Wahi by showcasing their facilities, although the young French striker wasn't enthusiastic about the idea of joining Strasbourg on loan, as Chelsea would have sent him there for a year.
Similarly, Eintracht Frankfurt extended an invitation without making an official offer, suggesting interest in the event of Randal Kolo Muani's departure. Other clubs, including Tottenham, Arsenal, Monaco, and Olympique Marseille, have also explored the possibility of acquiring Wahi through this summer transfer window.
The latest development, as reported by Foot Mercato, reveals PSG's entry into the race for Wahi's signature. The player, under contract at MHSC through June 2025, is now subject to established contacts between PSG's management and their counterparts at Montpellier. The initial discussions revolve around "information, particularly on the conditions of the transfer." At the age of 20 and hailing from the Paris region, Wahi could potentially become a part of the new chapter for PSG, donning the Rouge & Bleu threads next.
