Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) new reinforcements plan has been outlined.
“Turning to defense, PSG are aiming to bring in Picayune Tomori (25, AC Milan) next summer,” Spanish outlet Fichajes reported on Friday.
PSG has been one of the most active teams in the transfer market this summer. They ushered in a new era with the signing of top players such as Marco Asensio, Lee Kang-In, Manuel Ugarte, Ousmane Dembele, and Randal Kolo Moani.
In particular, they focused on strengthening the offense. From Asensio to Dembele, Kolo Moani to Gonzalo Higuain, the club spent €145 million on strikers alone.
It’s paid off to some degree. PSG has scored a whopping 29 goals in 12 league games this season. The only team in the Ligue 1 to match PSG’s goalscoring output is AS Monaco (25).
Now, they’re shifting their focus to signing defenders. According to reports, PSG are planning to prioritize a defender in next summer’s transfer window.
Tomori has emerged as a potential target. Tomori is a key center back for Milan and has caught PSG‘s eye with his physicality and explosive speed.
He is considered one of Milan’s indispensable players. This season alone, he has started 15 of Milan’s 16 games, with only one game missed through suspension.
Milan would have to spend big to sign him. Tomori’s current market value is estimated at €40 million. It is expected that a transfer fee of more than that will be required to actually sign him.
