Report: PSG Eyes RB Leipzig Ace as Alternate to Inter Milan Star Defender

Paris Saint-Germain is keen on adding a center-back before the summer transfer window closes. The capital club is targeting Inter Milan’s Milan Škriniar; however, the French giants have a Plan B in RB Leipzig’s Mohamed Simakan. 

L’Equipe’s Loïc Tanzi reported on Wednesday that PSG has its eyes on Simakan should they fail to land the 27-year-old Slovakian international. Regarding the asking price, the German side values the France international at €40 million. 

Furthermore, the current Ligue 1 champions are prepared to put any players to satisfy Leipzig’s desire to have a replacement before the 22-year-old leaves.

Simakan is under contract until 2026, so the Bundesliga side isn’t in a rush to sell if PSG doesn’t meet their asking price. Nonetheless, some could view the pursuit of the defender as controversial, considering the Simakan is from Marseille. 

During the 2021-22 season, the French center-back made 40 appearances scoring one goal and one assist. Furthermore, Simakan was part of the Leipzig squad that won the German Cup.
