Paris Saint-Germain has been linked with multiple notable forwards as of late, from Tottenham striker Harry Kane to Napoli standout Victor Osimhen. PSG reportedly has plans to shake up its attacking setup for next season.
According to FootMercato, PSG aims to soon bring in a true No. 9 to “support” Kylian Mbappe.
FootMercato adds that PSG had plans to bring in a true center forward during last year’s summer transfer window, but the club ultimately failed to sign such a player.
PSG was linked with the likes of Robert Lewandowski and Gianluca Scamacca last year. In the end, Lewandowski decided to take his talents to Barcelona, while PSG chose not to meet Sassuolo’s hefty price demand for Scamacca, who wound up putting pen to paper on a five-year contract deal with West Ham.
PSG manager Christophe Galtier confirmed in September that the club had such transfer plans. Had PSG managed to bring in such a player, it could have then opened the door for Galtier to roll out his team under a 4-3-1-2 setup, with Mbappe occupying one of the two center forward spots upfront.
In the big picture, Osimhen has two more years left on his contract at Napoli, while Kane is currently slated to become a free agent next year.
