French star set to snub Premier League interest for PSG switch

The Les Bleus attacker is going home

France star Randal Kolo-Muani is set top snub interest from the Premier League to complete a move to Paris Saint Germain, according to recent reports, with the French side willing to pay the £80m price tag set by Eintracht Frankfurt.

Kolo-Muani is one of several strikers on the market this summer, and has caught the attention of both Manchester United and Chelsea, with the two English giants on the hunt for a new no.9.

With 15 goals and 14 assists in the Bundesliga last season, the 24-year-old was also thought to be on the radar of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, though both have since looked elsewhere with Bayern keen on signing Harry Kane and Los Blancos seemingly waiting on Kylian Mbappe.

Now, as per the Independent, a new side have entered the race for his signature, and are indeed leading it, with Paris Saint Germain keen to bolster a frontline that has already lost Lionel Messi and, if rumours are to be believed, could also lose both Mbappe and Neymar this summer.

‘The pursuit is entirely separate to Kylian Mbappe’s future, since the French champions are looking for a No 9 regardless’, it is reported, and the Parisians ‘are understood to have successfully sold the idea that a return to his home nation will suit him better at this point in his career’.

The news will come as a blow to Premier League sides who were still weighing up their options, with Kolo-Muani set to leave for less than his £100m price tag and increased belief that ‘a deal can be struck for £80m’, a fee that appears low given the lack of choice on the market when it comes to forwards.
