Paul Pogba and Lucas Paquetá among PSG midfield targets

L’Équipe report that alongside finding a potential replacement for Kylian Mbappé this summer, PSG’s transfer plans would also involve changes in the midfield.

One of the club’s priorities is Lyon attacking midfielder Lucas Paquetá, of whom director Leonardo is particularly a fan having signed him during his time at Milan. Leonardo is also an admirer of Paul Pogba, not least with the Frenchman’s contract expiring at the end of the campaign.

Although no contact has been established with regard to the former, the 24-year-old does appear keen to move to Paris. His profile as a technical yet combative all-rounder is particularly valued. On the other hand, initial discussions took place last summer for Pogba’s entourage and Les Parisiens remain interested in the Manchester United man.

These potential arrivals also mean that the club is hesitating over whether to extend Ángel Di María’s contract – with the Argentine turning 34 next week, a renewal offer may not be forthcoming despite the winger’s own desire to stay another season.
