No other position in the Paris Saint-Germain squad needs strengthening as much as a right-back.
With Thomas Meunier out of contract on June 30, and expected to leave, manager Thomas Tuchel will be left with Thilo Kehrer and Colin Dagba as his only options.
Leonardo, PSG’s sporting director, has prioritized right-back this offseason and it appears as though he’s found the solution.
The report reveals that the Montenegro international is a priority for PSG and the Ligue 1 champions are preparing to submit an offer of €15 million, plus a bonus.
Marusic is under contract with Lazio until 2022, so the Serie A club is in no rush to ship off one of their best players. In fact, the report claims Lazio would prefer to receive upwards of €25 million for Marusic.
One interesting footnote to the reporting out of Italy mentioned the name of Sergej Milinković-Savić. Despite all indications that the star midfielder signed an extension with Lazio, PSG hasn’t given up hope of bringing the Serbia international to the Parc des Princes.
