Paris Saint-Germain is looking at young French talent as part of this new project with sporting advisor Luis Campos. The name that the capital club has circled is Lille OSC’s Leny Yoro.
Yoro will probably be the next most sought-after French talent, considering Les Dogues might have to sell him this summer with his contract expiring in 2025. As a result, the Ligue 1 side needs to secure the maximum return.
RMC Sport’s Fabrice Hawkins reports PSG tried to sign Yoro this January, but Lille rejected this approach as they want to keep him this winter. Furthermore, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, and Manchester United have also inquired about Yoro. There will likely be a bidding war for him with so many clubs eyeing Yoro.

Hawkins also notes that Lille has offered him an extension, but the trend is not toward extending his deal with the French side. All the big heavyweights in European football must prepare their offers because securing the young defender will likely take a large sum.
