Transfer News: PSG Reportedly Receives Boost in Pursuit of Napoli Defender

Paris Saint-Germain needs to revamp their central defense with the likely departure of Sergio Ramos, whose contract expires in June, and the Achilles injury to Presnel Kimpembe that will keep him out well into the 2023-24 season. 

Foot Mercato confirms the reporting done by Gazzetta dello Sport that PSG sporting advisor Luis Campos is in the mix for South Korean and Napoli defender Min-jae Kim. 

Additionally, the French media outlet also acknowledges that from July 1 to 15, 2023, Kim will be available to foreign clubs for an amount between €45 million and €50 million; however, the reporting also states that the amount has increased slightly to €52.53 million. 

The 26-year-old would be the second central defender to arrive this summer transfer window should PSG make a move during those two weeks. Inter Milan center-back Milan Škriniar has already agreed to a contract with the French giants.

Nonetheless, there are other targets, as Marquinhos’ future might also be in question, considering how far his form has fallen in the last year and a half, ever since the second-leg contest between PSG and Real Madrid. 

Sporting CP defender Gonçalo Inacio is still in the sights of Campos, with the Lisbon club wanting €45 million for the 21-year-old. The other target is Villarreal’s Pau Torres, as the capital club appears ready to improve their backline.
