Paris Saint-Germain wants another striker before the summer transfer window closes on Sept. 1. The prime target for the capital club is Eintracht Frankfurt star Randal Kolo Muani.
The Ligue 1 giants have a few hours to reach a deal with the German club for the Frenchman. However, their second offer has hit a hurdle as both sides cannot agree on a transfer fee.
Sky Sports News’ Florian Plettenberg reports that Frankfurt has informed PSG that they will not accept the €80 million offer for Kolo Muani. Paris is preparing a new proposal but will not pay €100 million. Nonetheless, the striker is pushing for the move.

While the two clubs are at odds over the economics of the potential transfer, both sides want to get a deal done before the window closes. Furthermore, Plettenberg reveals that Hugo Ekitike could be the key to resolving the issue.
