According to today’s edition of L’Équipe, Spanish attacker Jesé has surpassed Alexandre Lacazette in PSG’s list of summer transfer window priorities.
The 23 year old can play on the wings or down the middle as a replacement for Edinson Cavani. The Spaniard is now Les Parisiens’s priority, even if they continue to closely monitor the developments in the future of Alexandre Lacazette.
The reason for this change of heart?
Laurent Blanc and Olivier Létang preferred Alexandre Lacazette, Unai Emery and Patrick Kluivert appear to prefer Jesé.
PSG’s relationship with Lyon at the moment is very difficult, and Les Gones would surely make Les Parisiens overpay considerably to land Lacazette. President Aulas is being very greedy with the price tag for the French striker, pushing PSG to go for Jesé instead.
Jesé received a contract extension offer from Real Madrid recently, with his current deal expiring in 2017. He did not respond to the offer from Los Blancos because he wants to leave the club.
Real Madrid and PSG are in advanced discussions to finalise a possible deal. Although Jesé is listening to Les Parisiens’s arguments, it is not certain that he will join the club.
His priority appears to be joining the English Premier League and specifically Liverpool, who are following him intensely. If he leaves Real Madrid, he wants to do so in order to receive regular playing time, which is something PSG cannot guarantee him.
