Mercato: PSG make Kolo Muani their new attacking priority

03/07/23 14:55 by Fabien Borne

According to a number of French media reports, PSG have just re-launched their interest in Randal Kolo Muani, who is now being touted as the new Parisian priority for the center-forward position.

With two months to go before the transfer market closes, PSG have a clear idea of their options: a winger and a striker. PSG have already completed the arrivals of two central defenders (Milan Skriniar and Lucas Hernandez), two midfielders (Manuel Ugarte and Cher Ndour) and an attacking midfielder (Marco Asensio), and are now looking to recruit a right winger (Bernardo Silva and Bradley Barcola are targeted), as well as a centre-forward.

And while Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen were once top priorities, the former is now headed for Bayern Munich, while the latter could stay at Napoli, who have set a price tag of €180 million. This morning, the Portuguese press also reported continuing Parisian interest in Gonçalo Ramos, Benfica Lisbon's Portuguese striker.

Kolo Muani unanimously approved by PSG

However, according to Le Parisien, PSG's new priority for a centre-forward is Randal Kolo Muani, for whom Frankfurt are reportedly asking between 70 and 80 million euros. According to the regional daily, this is an affordable price for the Parisian club, which has €200 million to spend on the rest of the summer.

A rising star in the French national team, Randal Kolo Muani is the talk of Paris. Kylian Mbappé, his captain in the French national team, is very fond of him, as are Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and Luis Campos. It remains to be seen what the main interested party, who has never hidden his interest in the Premier League, thinks.

According to Le Parisien, "RKM" may have been hesitant about the Parisian project in recent weeks, but "now sees it more clearly with the imminent appointment of Luis Enrique as coach". According to L'Equipe, which explains that PSG relaunched the dossier last week, the Bondy native is "listening carefully" to the Parisian project.
