L’Équipe report today that Paris Saint-Germain established a precise transfer market strategy during negotiations for Kylian Mbappé’s contract renewal, which will see them target a central defender, three midfielders and one wide attacking midfielder.
One of the midfield recruitments will be expected to start, with Monaco’s Aurélien Tchouaméni the priority. Nevertheless, the former Bordeaux man had up until now been prioritising Liverpool’s interest, and is still “dreaming” of joining the Premier League side’s project.
In the aftermath of the Kylian Mbappé saga, Real Madrid will also be looking to bring in the French international, who they have been following for several seasons and see him as a Casemiro replacement.
Monaco value the 22-year-old at around €100m. RMC Sport had reported yesterday that Tchouaméni had agreed terms with both Liverpool and Real Madrid and was due to make his choice before the end of the week, leaving PSG at a disadvantage in the race to sign him.
