For PSG, acquiring a central defender in this transfer window is crucial, and they are closely monitoring the Bundesliga market.

Luis Campos has done a great job throughout his tenure at PSG, and in this market, the Parisian club's sporting director has been evaluating possible options for arrivals in Paris, keeping an eye on each of the most important positions to strengthen.

For the 23/24 season, the central defender position experienced several ups and downs due to player injuries. Therefore, it is important for this transfer window to evaluate the option of a central defender who can achieve positive continuity in Luis Enrique's squad, yielding positive results for the club.

Edmond Tapsoba on Luis Campos' radar

PSG has been evaluating the possibility of strengthening their squad with Edmond Tapsoba for the upcoming season. The 25-year-old player has just won the Bundesliga with Bayer Leverkusen, breaking Bayern Munich's dominance in Germany. This central defender is a great asset that PSG could acquire for the 24/25 season.

According to journalist Santi Aouna, PSG is very interested in the Burkina Faso player. Besides his great defensive role, his market price is around 50 million euros, making him a great potential signing for the Parisian club.

While waiting for the future French star Leny Yoro to decide his destination, PSG is not holding back from evaluating other options, and Tapsoba is the closest to being their central defender signing. However, this remains an interest for now, and PSG's final decision will be known throughout this summer.
