PSG close in on double signing that could pave way for Kylian Mbappe exit

Paris Saint Germain are closing in on a 130m euro double deal for a pair of forwards which could allow Kylian Mbappe to leave before the end of the transfer window, it has emerged.

The French champions have already seen Lionel Messi depart the Parc des Princes this summer, and are keen to refresh their frontline after another disappointing campaign in the Champions League.

They are closing in on a deal for Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele, expected to set them back around 50m euros thanks to a release clause in the Frenchman’s contract at the Camp Nou, and a move that will see Barcelona make just 25m euros.

However, they remain on the hunt for an out and out striker, with Harry Kane and Dusan Vlahovic among those that they have been linked with in recent weeks.

Now, they have turned their attentions to Goncalo Ramos, and the Portuguese striker is expected to join the club in a deal worth 80m euros in the coming days.

He will add further firepower to an attack that has already recruited Lee Kang In and Marco Asensio this summer, and is coming off the back of a prolific season for Benfica, in which he scored 19 times in the Portuguese top flight.

These arrivals will only further fuel speculation that Mbappe could leave this summer after he was left out of the pre-season tour of Japan due to his unwillingness to pen a new deal in Paris.

It is widely expected that the Frenchman will join Real Madrid on a free transfer next summer, but he could yet leave on loan or permanently before the end of this summer transfer window, though he has already rejected one offer from Saudi Arabia.
