With Kylian Mbappé’s likely departure at the end of the season, PSG will be forced to sign a big-name attacker next summer. Rafael Leao has been mentioned, but the Parisian club is also considering Victor Osimhen.
Who will be the next star attacker for Paris Saint-Germain? Kylian Mbappé’s contract with the capital club expires next June, and he is closer than ever to leaving. The trend is clearly towards a signature for Real Madrid for the French national team captain, who will leave a huge void in PSG’s attack. Luis Campos and Nasser Al-Khelaïfi are already preparing for this scenario and have identified several players who could compensate for the departure of “KM7”. As indicated by TF1, one of them is none other than Rafael Leao.
However, the Portuguese international, who feels he is at the end of his cycle at AC Milan, does not make a return to Ligue 1 a priority and should favor La Liga or the Premier League depending on the offers he receives. According to the Corriere dello Sport, another Serie A striker is in the sights of Paris Saint-Germain: Victor Osimhen. Luis Campos knows the Nigerian international very well, having recruited him to Lille a few years ago. Even though he has extended his contract with Napoli until June 2026, Victor Osimhen could leave Napoli at the end of the season if he receives a big offer.
PSG is very interested in Victor Osimhen
This is a situation that particularly interests PSG in the context of Kylian Mbappé’s succession. The interest of the French capital club in Victor Osimhen is real, the question now is how much money Qatar is willing to put on the table to convince the very intransigent Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis. There is no doubt that it will be necessary to exceed the 100 million euros mark to recruit the player who will play in the semi-finals of the CAN with Nigeria on Wednesday evening. Highly courted last summer, Osimhen will undoubtedly have many suitors once again in the summer of 2024, and PSG is well aware of this, which is why Luis Campos is taking things in hand very early to try to win the bet during the next transfer window.
