PSG name Khvicha Kvaratskhelia as their prime target this summer

Paris Saint-Germain have often turned to Napoli when in need of a statement signing and this summer will prove to be no different as they look to make Khvicha Kvaratskhelia (23) their prime target. 

Edinson Cavani (37) and Ezequiel Lavezzi (39) in the 2012/13 season were the coming of a new dawn in the French capital, one financed by the QSI funds, while the arrival of Fabián Ruiz (28) in the 2022/23 campaign was far less dramatic but no less meaningful as he marked a change in approach. 

Players would now be increasingly targeted less for their star appeal and more for their ability to fit into the developing project; a focus on the bigger picture rather than the bigger name. 

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia the post-Mbappé statement

Kvaratskhelia is by no means a small name, but the club are far more interested in the specific profile that he could bring to the squad. According to Le Parisien, the Georgian winger fits the club’s specific wants as they look for a player to come in and replace Kylian Mbappé (25). 

An ambidextrous winger who can provide another option alongside Bradley Barcola (21) on the left wing, a position the club believes they do not have enough cover for with the impending departure of Mbappé.
