As Paris Saint-Germain are looking to settle their situation with Edinson Cavani, their upcoming opponent in the UEFA Champions League, Borussia Dortmund, are looking to make another move in the January transfer window.
After bringing over Erling Haaland earlier this month from RB Salzburg, the German club might add Juventus FC midfielder Emre Can. Earlier this month, PSG was in the running to try and acquire the 26-year-old, but Juventus director Fabio Paratici went on record, via Football Italia, to say that the Can would stay with Juventus this season.
However, it seems as though the Serie A leader has changed their mind and is openly discussing a transfer with Dortmund. According to Football Italia, PSG’s upcoming Champions League foe made an offer of €20 million for Can, but Juventus is looking for a fee closer to €25 million.
With such a low fee request, the money is not the issue because it’s an amount that PSG can afford to pay especially if Cavani leaves in January for around €20 million. Either the player didn’t want to come to the French capital or Juventus didn’t want to sell their midfielder to PSG.
Nonetheless, if the deal does go through and Can ends up at Dortmund, it’s another player that manager Thomas Tuchel will need to prepare for in the weeks remaining in the buildup to the first match at Signal Iduna Park on February 18.
