PSG Mercato: Bayer Leverkusen Sets Price for Forward Amid Interest From Newcastle, Paris SG

Paris Saint-Germain has let go of various youth products that have gone on to flourish outside the French capital. Moussa Diaby was one of them, as the 22-year-old has become a stable of the Bayer Leverkusen attack this past season.

Diaby appeared in 42 fixtures for the German side, scoring 17 goals and recording 14 assists. As a result, there’s a lot of interest in the France international. Nonetheless, Bayer Leverkusen is keen on holding onto the player whose contract doesn’t expire until 2025.

However, the Bundesliga club isn’t going to turn down a significant offer for the winger. Sky Sport’s Florian Plettenberg reports that open for offers around €60-million and €70-million or more. But no offers so far despite the interest from PSG and Newcastle United.

Plettenberg adds that Diaby wants to take the next step in his career, which could see him heading to the Premier League or home. Nonetheless, it’s hard to envision the French giants paying that fee at that asking price since they’re recovering financially.
