Layvin Kurzawa is likely heading out of Paris Saint-Germain and club sporting director, Leonardo, wants to add more depth this summer transfer window to the left-back position.
FC Porto’s Alex Telles is likely the first option to replace Kurzawa; however, there needs to be more than one option during the transfer window, which is why PSG is monitoring Nicolás Tagliafico of AFC Ajax.
In a recent interview with Continental Radio, the 27-year-old acknowledge a potential departure from the Dutch club. Furthermore, Tagliafico hinted at what he’s looking for in a new club, which includes the quality of living outside the pitch.
“I try to analyze everything. When I came here (in the Netherlands), I knew it was a big club in Europe, with a lot of history, a philosophy of play. I try to analyze everything, the sportsman, the quality of life,” Tagliafico said. “The English championship is the most competitive with 4, 5 teams playing the title. The Spanish championship too, but I think it’s a tone below. Serie A is a tough, very tactical championship. But I should not make my choice solely on the championship. The quality of life, the quality of the city that counts.”
With Argentines like Angel Di María and Leandro Paredes on the squad, there certainly can be some recruiting from them.
Finally, when it comes to the cost for Tagliafico, Transfermarkt puts his value at €28 million. However, like Telles, clubs like Atlético Madrid, Chelsea FC, and FC Barcelona are also in pursuit, so the price can see some inflation.
