Former French forward Jerome Rothen has called for Paris Saint-Germain to consider signing Eintracht Frankfurt star Randal Kolo Muani over Napoli standout Victor Osimhen and Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
PSG is well expected to sign a true center forward in the upcoming summer transfer window, and the club has been linked with the likes of Osimhen and Kane as of late.
PSG has also been in the transfer rumor mill with Kolo Muani, and Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Markus Krösche is reportedly seeking at least €100 million in any transfer deal involving the French international. Krösche did recently note that the club has not received any “concrete offers” for the former Nantes forward.
During a recent airing of his “Rothen s’enflamme” program on RMC Sport, Rothen took some time to make a case for why PSG should look to bring Kolo Muani back to Ligue 1.
“You have to jump on the opportunity when you have the opportunity to bring back an excellent young player, and still he is not that young at 24 years old, but he starts his career at a very high level, he is a French international,” Rothen said.
“He was born in the Paris region, there are connections that are necessarily made with the headliner, Kylian Mbappe.”
As Rothen touched on, Kolo Muani has starred alongside Kylian Mbappe with the France national team. The two most notably shined together during their time on the pitch in the 2022 FIFA World Cup Final.
Overall, Kolo Muani has tallied 13 goals and 10 assists in Bundesliga play this season.
