PSG begin to outline summer targets

Le Parisien report that PSG have begun to outline their summer transfer window targets.

German tactician Thomas Tuchel wants to sign another two central midfielders this summer and his priorities remain Idrissa Gueye (Everton) and Tanguy N’Dombélé (Lyon). Contacts are also ongoing with Brazilian midfielder Allan (Napoli). The PSG dressing room are particularly keen on the latter individual, always excited about the prospect of adding another South American to the club’s ranks.

Ander Herrera (Manchester United) remains on the club’s shortlist, but he is not a priority in this sector, according to the Parisian paper.

The club is also looking to add a pair of full-backs this window, and have identified Cristiano Piccini (Valencia) and Cristiano Biraghi (Fiorentina) – two relatively low-cost options, it would appear.

Another surprising target in the defensive sector that PSG are making steps towards is that of 29-year-old Dutchman Daley Blind of Ajax and formerly at Manchester United. The club wants to make sure that it is adding European experience in this summer transfer window.

The Ligue 1 champions elect are also holding out some hope of landing Matthijs de Ligt, the superstar teenage central defensive prospect who also belongs to Dutch giants Ajax. A deal for the teen is estimated to cost between €70m and €100m. Tuchel is of the mind that Thilo Kehrer’s long-term future is at right-back for PSG, and he still wants enough central defenders to be able to operate with a back three.
