PSG still has a lot of projects to finalize by the end of the transfer window. The will of Luis Campos is in particular to strengthen the defense of the Ile-de-France.
In Paris, we are currently on a lot of fronts. Christophe Galtier and his group are present in Japan for a preparatory summer tour for the Champions Trophy against Nantes. Internally, the capital club is also working on the recruitment of well-chosen players. While Hugo Ekitike has just landed at PSG, the former Stade de Reims will soon be accompanied by other elements. If we have been talking a lot in recent weeks about players like Milan Skriniar (Inter), Renato Sanches (LOSC) or even Gianluca Scamacca (Sassuolo), PSG was apparently negotiating with a mystery player, since Nordi Mukiele is announced near the capital. The French international will undoubtedly come to compete with Achraf Hakimi. Good news for the PSG defense, which should also keep Presnel Kimpembe.
Kimpembe swears loyalty to PSG
🚨 Presnel Kimpembe 🇫🇷 did NOT ask to leave PSG this summer! ❌
Luis Campos and Christophe Galtier imagine starting the season with him, despite the strong interest of two clubs including Chelsea.

According to information from theEvening Standard, Presnel Kimpembe does not wish to accept Chelsea’s proposal. However, Thomas Tuchel himself did a lot to convince him to join him in London. But the Ile-de-France titi wants to fight to keep his place in Paris, even if a new central defender arrives. Aware that attracting Kimpembe will be very hard this summer, Chelsea wants to complete the arrival of Jules Koundé from Sevilla FC as soon as possible. The English media specifies that Chelsea and Koundé have already agreed on the basis of a contract. The Blues have sent a €60m offer to the Andalusian management. Negotiations are still taking place but it filters that Sevilla prefers to sell Koundé to Chelsea rather than FC Barcelona, a direct competitor in La Liga. Will it be enough to forget Kimpembe? The transfer window is still long and a lot of things are still likely to happen, whether at Chelsea or PSG.
