PSG looking to sell up to eight players as part of summer clearout

L’Équipe report today that Paris Saint-Germain are looking to sell seven or eight players this summer as part of a summer clearout to overhaul the squad.

In particular, four players have been identified as possible departures, namely Julian Draxler, Leandro Paredes, Thilo Kehrer and Layvin Kurzawa.

The Argentine midfielder is being followed by several Italian clubs, with his contract expiring in 2023 after being signed for €47m by PSG in 2019. The 27-year-old, who is close to Neymar and Lionel Messi, may not want to leave, however.

Kehrer is also under contract until 2023, and is valued between €20m and €30m. German and English clubs are keeping tabs on him, with a potential departure on the cards having never lived up to the promise of his €37m transfer in 2018.

In the case of the French left-back, who turned down the club’s request for him to leave last summer, his desire to leave with another two years left on his deal is in question. The 29-year-old has made just the one appearance this campaign, in the Trophée des Champions, and is dreaming of a move to England despite approaches from Lyon and Turkey this season.
