PSG’s interest in Højlund signifies their commitment to reinforcing their attacking options with promising talent. The 20-year-old has impressed with his performances for Atalanta, showcasing his goal-scoring ability and potential to thrive at a higher level.
However, PSG faces competition from the Red Devils, who have closely monitored Højlund’s progress. The English club likely considers the Danish striker a pivotal target to improve their squad. As a result, the race could further intensify the race for his signature.
While PSG has made inquiries, the nature and extent of their pursuit remain unclear. Romano’s report suggests that the French club views Højlund in high regard. Still, whether they will advance with a formal offer is yet to be determined.
