Report: PSG Keeping Tabs on Lazio Defender

Paris Saint-Germain is targeting Lazio defender Luiz Felipe for a possible transfer deal, according to the Italian-based outlet TuttoMercatoWeb.

Leonardo, PSG’s sporting director, is the one showing interest in Felipe. PSG views the talent as one who could fill the team’s need for a reliable defensive reinforcement, especially since Thiago Silva will be leaving the club following the 2020 UEFA Champions League Final. However, Leonardo is solely just interested in Felipe at the moment, as the report does not note that he is keen on jump-starting transfer negotiations with Lazio for the defender.

Felipe is coming off of his third season with the Serie A side. He recorded 30 appearances in all competitions. Injuries were a problem for the defensive talent over the season; he missed time due to calf, ankle, and muscular issues.

Felipe is one of many defensive talents who have been linked with PSG over the past weeks as the club looks to address defensive depth concerns.
