Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) can target these 3 strikers in the summer transfer window

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) has been quite busy in the summer window, signing six players thus far. Unlike in recent years, PSG is not spending big money on superstars but instead is making some savvy moves. The club’s additions of young players Manuel Ugarte, Kang-in Lee, and Cher Ndour were well thought out and appear to be wise decisions.

According to trade specialist Fabrizio Romano, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is also aggressively looking to add a striker during this transfer window. Kylian Mbappe has stated that he will not be staying at the club through 2024, and the Parisians are unwilling to let him go for free. They aim to trade him this summer, thus PSG is looking for a replacement No. 9.

Three strikers Paris Saint-Germain might sign in the summer transfer window

1. Randal Kolo Muani (Eintracht Frankfurt)

Randal Kolo Muani (Eintracht Frankfurt)

Randal Kolo Muani was Frankfurt’s best performer last season, with 15 goals and 14 assists. Last season, the Frenchman scored 23 goals and provided 17 assists in 46 games across all competitions, and he has been linked with every top club as a result of his exploits.

Kolo Muani’s skills include dribbling, finishing, and making crucial passes. In 31 Bundesliga appearances last season, he completed 2.2 dribbles and provided 1.3 critical passes per game. Kolo Muani enjoys making short passes, cutting inside, and executing layoffs. His characteristics are well-suited to Luis Enrique’s possession-based strategy.

According to Sky Sports, PSG is the favourite for Randal Kolo Muani. The 24-year-old is entering his prime and might be a long-term project for Paris Saint-Germain. He is unquestionably one of the names at the top of Paris Saint-Germain’s list to lead their attack next season.

2. Dusan Vlahovic (Juventus)

Dusan Vlahovic (Juventus)

Dusan Vlahovic was one of Juventus’ shining spots throughout a turbulent season. Last season, Juventus was punished with point deductions twice (the first was reversed), which harmed their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League. Despite his problems, Vlahovic scored 14 goals and assisted on four others in 42 outings across all competitions last season.

Vlahovic is also a strong finisher who can take straight free kicks. He’s also strong in the air, having won 1.3 aerial duels per game in 22 Seria A games last season. Last season, he averaged 2.5 shots and 0.5 critical passes per game.

The Serbian shooter can benefit from playing in Luis Enrique’s attacking style after previously playing in a defensive setup. According to Fabrizio Romano, Juventus is in serious financial problems and is eager to sell Vlahovic if an attractive offer comes in.

3. Goncalo Ramos (Benfica) 

Goncalo Ramos (Benfica)

Goncalo Ramos was one of the top attackers in the Portuguese Primeira Liga last season, scoring 19 goals and giving two assists for Benfica. Ramos wowed the world with a hat-trick against Switzerland in the World Cup’s Round of 16. After Pele, he became the second-youngest player in World Cup history to score a hat-trick in a knockout game.

Ramos is adept at keeping the ball, and finishing is one of his strongest assets. He provides set-piece possibilities since he is frequently fouled; in 30 Primeira Liga games last season, he was fouled 1.4 times per game. Last season, the marksman also averaged 3.3 shots each game.

Ramos is only 22 years old and has the potential to lead Paris Saint-Germain’s line in the next years. The Parisians, on the other hand, must pay a €120 million release clause to secure the services of the young Portuguese striker (according to GOAL). Paris Saint-Germain has the financial muscle to complete this transaction, but Benfica will be under no obligation to sell Ramos because his contract expires in 2025.
