Paris Saint-Germain have all the financial funds in the world and a new ambitious coach with Unai Emery. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic leaving the Ligue 1 champions, they are looking to add a new star striker. In that regard, PSG are battling two Premier League clubs.
First, the Paris club have identified Alexandre Lacazette is one of their man summer transfer targets. However, the 25-year-old is also wanted by a number of other big European clubs, including Arsenal. According to L’Equipe (via talkSPORT), Arsenal and PSG are leading the chase for Lacazette, with a battle about to emerge and a fee of £45 million being mentioned by The Telegraph.
Lacazette, who was surprisingly left home from Euro 2016, scored 23 goals in all competitions last season, including 21 in the French top flight. He’s ready to leave Lyon after coming through the youth ranks of the Ligue 1 club and making his senior debut on May 5, 2010.
Next, PSG are also considering making a move for Dutch topscorer Vincent Janssen. According to L’Equipe (via Get French Football), the Ligue 1 giants will battle Tottenham for the services of the 22-year-old.
The Spurs are working on a deal for the Dutch international, who scored 32 goals in all competitions last season for AZ, while Bundesliga club Wolfsburg have also made an approach. However, PSG are considering a bid in the area of £12-13 million.
