- PSG want to sign Alex Sandro and Jerome Boateng after losing out of Chelsea’s N'Golo Kante
- The Ligue 1 are now planning to hand a new contract to midfielder Adrien Rabiot
- PSG are under UEFA’s probe but can make defensive signings after offloading some players
Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly targeting Juventus full-back Alex Sandro or Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng after admitting they are not likely to sign Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante this summer.
According to an ESPN FC report, PSG are now eyeing a new contract for midfielder Adrien Rabiot, as Kante and Borussia Dortmund's Julian Weigl are not keen to join the French champions.
The report further suggests that the duo of Sandro and Boateng have "loosely agreed terms" with PSG, but it remains to be seen whether their respective clubs will approve a sale. The French champions are ready to splash about €100 million on the two stars.
Interestingly, PSG's main summer target was Chelsea’s Kante, but with the English transfer window closing on Thursday, such a switch will likely not see the light of the day.
PSG are locked in contract talks with Rabiot with the France international yet to pen an agreement, but new boss Thomas Tuchel has reportedly received assurances for the player.
At the moment, reports suggest PSG can only land a defensive signing as Bayern keen to part with the Germany international, who has been frequently linked with Manchester United.
On the other hand, Juventus are not eager to part with Sandro, unless PSG cough out a massive sum for the Brazilian.
However, PSG are expected to complete the sales of Goncalo Guedes and Jese Rodriguez as UEFA are still looking into the club’s financial fair play status, and until they are cleared, the club won't take any chances.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Chelsea have offered France international N'Golo Kante a new five-year deal worth £290,000 a week, The Times report.
The Blues are willing to make him their highest-paid player in a bid to keep the midfielder away from the clutches of Paris Saint-Germain.
The 27-year-old would approximately double his wages and earn a staggering £75m over the course of a contract that would see him stay at Stamford Bridge for two years until 2023.
