PSG scouting Chelsea right-back Tariq Lamptey intensely

Our colleagues at Soccer Link report that Ligue 1 champions PSG are intensely scouting 19-year-old Chelsea right-back Tariq Lamptey.

Multiple scouts have described Lamptey as the best right-back in the UEFA Youth League this season. Very quick, powerful despite his 1.70m height, an excellent crosser and very good technically, the youngster still needs to improve his concentration, his pure defensive characteristics and his ability to regularly contest aerial battles.

The right-back is out of contract with Chelsea at the end of this season and PSG have scouted him on multiple occasions already during this campaign.

PSG Sporting Director Leonardo is counting on offering the youngster a first professional contract in the coming weeks. Chelsea are currently struggling to convince Lamptey to stay.
