Paris Saint-Germain could be looking for a midfielder in the coming months, whether during the January window or next summer. One of the targets linked to the French giants is Real Sociedad star Martín Zubimendi.
The 24-year-old has been attracting the attention of top clubs across the continent. Scouts from PSG, Arsenal, Bayern Munich, and Borussia Dortmund went to see the player in action recently against SL Benfica.
However, PSG would face a challenge should they pursue the Spaniard. Diario SPORT reports that FC Barcelona wants to return with an interest in Zubimendi.
According to the report, Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez wants him, and the Blaugrana club will try to close his incorporation this upcoming summer.

Furthermore, the information from Spain reveals the transfer cost, which is the termination clause of €60 million. Real Sociedad’s president, Jokin Aperribay, notes that the price is non-negotiable.
Recent reports suggest that the Ligue 1 side’s winter transfer strategy is twofold, with a keen eye on bolstering the midfield and shoring up the defense. If Zubimendi is the right guy for PSG in their eyes, they’ll need to move quickly.
