This week, reports surfaced that Paris Saint-Germain defender Presnel Kimpembe, who is of interest to clubs like Chelsea and Juventus. The 26-year-old’s contract expires in 2024, so the capital club might need to decide on the center-back.
According to transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano, the reigning Ligue 1 champions are open to letting Kimpembe leave this summer. The Italian journalist states that he’s not out of PSG’s project, which sporting advisor Luis Campos now leads.
However, Romano adds that Kimpembe’s future relies on the proposals; that’s why new contract discussions are stalling. When it comes to a fee that the French giants want for the France international, a recent report suggests €50 million would be enough to sell him.
Juventus could lose Matthijs de Ligt this summer and eye Kimpembe as his possible replacement. Meanwhile, Chelsea has lost Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen this summer on free transfers, and the PSG defender is a target to replace those two players.
With Milan Skriniar possibly on the verge of coming, it will be interesting to see if Kimpembe does indeed stick around past this summer or heads abroad.
