Paris Saint-Germain will look to be active once the January transfer window opens. The Ligue 1 giants are reportedly hoping to bolster the squad for the second half of the 2023-24 season and have their eyes on Real Sociedad star Martín Zubimendi.
According to 90min France, the spotlight was firmly fixed on Real Sociedad’s defensive midfielder as representatives from some of Europe’s football giants descended upon the stadium.
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 against SL Benfica on Wednesday.

Furthermore, the timing of this scouting mission coincides with recent reports revealing PSG’s winter transfer strategy, which appears to be twofold. Not content with their current standing, the Ligue 1 side is keen on reinforcing the midfield and defense.
After a couple of months since the start of the season, PSG’s management likely recognized these areas as crucial to their pursuit of domestic and continental success. As a result, the Real Sociedad man emerges as a prime candidate to address one of these needs.
