Bayern Munich to rival PSG’s interest in Borussia Dortmund’s Gregor Kobel

Whilst Gianluigi Donnarumma (25) is having one of his most accomplished seasons at Paris Saint-Germain, the French side are nonetheless potentially in the market for a new goalkeeper, according to L’Équipe

Donnarumma has bailed PSG out on many occasions this season. His shot-stopping ability is not in question, but what is is his footwork and his work off the goalline in general. 

Within this context, further recruitment in this position has not been ruled out. Back in February, L’Équipe reported that PSG had an interest in Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Gregor Kobel (26).

Dortmund aware of struggle to retain Kobel

The publication added that contact with the Swiss goalkeeper’s entourage had been established and a summer move might not be out of the question for a player who has become a core component of the Bundesliga side.

In their latest report, L’Équipe have revealed that Les Parisiens remain interested in Kobel, but they aren’t the only ones. Bayern Munich may also be interested in the goalkeeper, whom they view as a potential successor to Manuel Neuer. Borussia Dortmund are aware of the intense interest in Kobel and despite recently extending his contract until 2028, know that it may be difficult to retain him.
