A transfer tussle is brewing in the football world as Paris Saint-Germain throws its hat into the ring for Ivorian midfielder Ibrahim Sangaré.
Dutch journalist Rik Elfrink reports that the French giants seek to bolster their midfield options with Sangaré’s potential addition. However, the capital club does face competition to sign the 25-year-old.
Elfrink adds that Liverpool and Bayern Munich have closely monitored Sangaré’s progress. Meanwhile, PSV Eindhoven is standing firm on its valuation of the player.

Nottingham Forest’s offer of a loan deal with a compulsory purchase option of €25 million has been swiftly rejected by the Dutch club.
PSV is adamant about including a clause requiring a fee of €37 million for the player’s permanent acquisition. This resolute stance underscores PSV’s belief in Sangaré’s worth and determination to secure a deal that aligns with their valuation.
As the Sept. 1 summer transfer window deadline approaches, PSG will receive an injection of money following the reported sale of Neymar Jr. to Al-Hilal. So the Ligue 1 side could make one final push to further makeover their midfield.
