Saudi Arabia is once again eyeing a Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) player.
Spanish media ‘Pichajes’ reported on the 30th (Korean time) that “Presnel Kimpembe (28, PSG) has been named as a new recruit target for Saudi Arabia.”
PSG is considered the team that showed the most active movement in this summer’s transfer market. They succeeded in strengthening their strength by recruiting Marco Asensio, Lee Kang-in, Manuel Ugarte, and Ousmane Dembele.스포츠토토
The appearance of a new face also means the departure of existing players. PSG compressed its squad by sending out Neymar, Marco Verratti, Mauro Icardi, and Georginio Wijnaldum.
In particular, there was active trading with Saudi Arabia. Neymar was sent for a transfer fee of 90 million euros (about 128.6 billion won), and Wijnaldum was also transferred for 8 million euros (about 11.4 billion won).
Saudi Arabia’s interest in PSG players continues. According to this report, the Saudi Arabian club is said to be seriously considering signing Kimpembe.
Kimpembe is considered one of PSG’s key defenders. A product of the PSG youth team, since being promoted to the first team in 2015, he has established himself as an indispensable part of the team, appearing in a total of 236 games.
Compared to his performance so far, his outlook for this season is not good. Kimpembe suffered an Achilles tendon injury. Because he has not recovered yet, he has not been able to play in a single game this season.
His future at PSG is uncertain. Kimpembe’s contract with PSG expires in 2024. PSG is likely to consider selling in the January transfer market to make money from the transfer fee.
The thoughts of overseas media were the same. ‘Pichahes’ said, “Kimpembe’s future is surrounded by uncertainty. “PSG has begun to seriously consider the possibility of selling Kimpembe.”
