Hot rumours

Victor Osimhen – Napoli

According to reports, PSG have already agreed personal terms with the Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen, ahead of a summer transfer. The former Serie A top scorer has not signed a new contract in Naples as of yet and looks set to leave this summer.

Having lost star attacker Mbappe to Real Madrid as a free agent, PSG are keen to go all out and bolster their forward line. Osimhen has experience in Ligue 1 football having played 27 times for Lille earlier in his career. However, more importantly, his 41 goals across the last two seasons are what will have caught the eye of the French champions.

Desire Doue – Rennes

The exciting French teenager is in the middle of a huge transfer tug-of-war. Desire Doue is being watched extensively by Bayern Munich, Tottenham Hotspur and also PSG. Bayern have already had one bid rejected for the winger, but the lure of remaining in France could sway the teenager's mind.

PSG are looking to bolster their front three, and with Doue still only 18 years old, he won't be demanding to start every game and can learn a lot behind more experienced players.

Joao Neves – Benfica

There appears to be a shift in the way PSG are conducting their business this summer, with yet another teenager after Doue, near the top of their shortlist. Joao Neves impressed when handed a chance with Portugal during Euro 2024, which may have forced PSG to act quickly in this transfer window.

According to reports, PSG and Neves have now agreed on personal terms, and the midfielder has given the green light to move to Paris. However, it remains to be seen if the French side can meet Benfica's mammoth £100 million asking price.
