- Match Analysis
Paris Saint-Germain won domestic treble last season but again failed to perform in the Champions league. The club has prioritized winning the Champions League ahead of the upcoming season.
Thomas Tuchel has been appointed as their new manager after Unai Emery left the club at the end of the season to join Arsenal. He has been given the task to win them the prize they desired the most.
The Ligue 1 champions haven’t been much active in the transfer window as they completed the signing of Gianluigi Buffon from Juventus on a free transfer and made Kylian Mbappe’s deal permanent.
But with the European transfer window still open until the end of August, the French Club still has the time to complete some signings in order to reinforce the squad.
Paris Saint-Germain are mooting a late transfer window bid for Barcelona forward and World Cup winner Ousmane Dembele, reports Sport.
The France International joined the La Liga giants from Borussia Dortmund for a deal worth £135.5 million last summer. His outstanding displays in Germany caught the attention of the club and led them to pay such a hefty amount.
But the 21 year old struggled with injuries since the move and endured a mix season. He just managed to make 23 appearances in all competitions, scoring 4 goals and assisting 6.
However, the winger got a place in the France World Cup squad but he was mostly on the bench. The Les Blues lifted the trophy after 20 years, beating Croatia in the finals.
He has been linked with a summer exit and there has been speculations that he could leave in order for more game time. The rumours further intensified when the Spanish side completed the signing of Malcolm.
The player was strongly linked with a move to Arsenal as Emery wanted a direct, fast winger. But the Gunners were interested in a loan deal and the Catalan giants also hinted that they are not willing to sell.
PSG however are hopeful of luring him to Ligue 1, where he would link up with France team-mate Mbappe and Brazil striker Neymar to form arguably the strongest attack in club football.
