Paris Saint-Germain (France) has not given up on Randal Kolo Moani (25-Frankfurt).
“PSG have rejected a €70 million offer for Randall Kolo Moani, but are still discussing the best way forward with Frankfurt,” French outlet L’Equipe reported on Wednesday.
In an internal transfer market meeting, Frankfurt agreed that PSG‘s initial €70 million bid for Kolo Moani was too low. Already a few weeks ago, they had rejected an offer of €80 million from Manchester United (England).
However, that doesn’t mean they’re done negotiating with PSG. PSG and Frankfurt officials are still in discussions to find the best solution to satisfy both clubs. In the meantime, PSG is preparing to offer €70 million plus bonuses.
The future of the Kolo Moani transfer talks depends on Frankfurt: if they are going to sell, they need to decide quickly and find his replacement.
PSG president Luis Campos had hoped to include the club’s young striker Hugo Ekitiqe (21) in the Kolo Moani deal, but Ekitiqe wants AC Milan (Italy) and West Ham (England) to advance their negotiations to sign him, so he will consider transfer options other than Frankfurt.
PSG have now played two matches since the start of the French Ligue 1 and are yet to pick up their first win. They have drawn both and scored just one goal. Despite bringing in several attacking 안전놀이터 talents this summer, including Marco Asensio (27) and Gonzalo Higuain (22), the lack of a solid finish in attack has led to frustrating performances.
As such, PSG are strongly interested in Kolo Moani to add more scoring firepower. He was at his best last season with 23 goals and 17 assists in 46 games and has already scored twice in two games this season. Kylian Mbappe, 25, returned and scored in the last game, but he still needs to be reinforced up front.
