Report: Tuchel Wanted PSG to Sign Former Barcelona Forward Suarez

It was clear over this year’s summer transfer window that Paris Saint-Germain was in the market for a backup center forward. Edinson Cavani and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting departed from PSG after their contracts expired, so the club needed to sign a forward to serve as the main backup to starter Mauro Icardi. PSG was linked with several forwards, but manager Thomas Tuchel had one player in mind who he wanted the club to bring in.

Tuchel aspired to see PSG sign now-former Barcelona forward Luis Suarez, according to a report from the French-based outlet Telefoot.

The report mentions that for Tuchel, the Uruguayan forward was a priority on his transfer wishlist. However, no deal came to fruition between PSG and Barca for Suarez, as the forward wound up signing with Atletico Madrid instead.

PSG was reportedly interested in Suarez earlier in the transfer window after rumors had emerged that the Uruguayan forward was likely leaving Barca.

PSG mainly settled for loan deals over the transfer window.
