The Ligue 1 champions are reported to be in the market for a high-profile striker and have identified Kolo Muani as a good fit for the club. The 24-year-old enjoyed a breakout year in Germany last season, notching an impressive 23 goals in all competitions, alongside 17 assists, which has seen a host of clubs in Europe monitor his situation.
Plettenberg says that while Frankfurt will not entertain a swap deal, they are considering the possibility of Ekitike as a replacement for Kolo Muani. The 21-year-old struggled for consistent minutes with Les Parisiens last season and has been identified as a player who can be offloaded this summer.
However, it is reported that Frankfurt will hold out for €100 million to part ways with Kolo Muani, which could force PSG into meeting the valuation as the transfer window enters its final week.
– Bayern Munich are considering a late swoop for Fulham defender Kenny Tete, according to the Sun. It is reported that Bayern have been monitoring the Dutchman since 2016 and could look to strike a deal with the Cottagers as they look to replace Benjamin Pavard, who is expected to join Internazionale. Fulham have already been forced into one high-profile departure, with Aleksandar Mitrovic joining Al Hilal, and the west London club will likely be reluctant to lose another key player late in the transfer window.
– West Ham are closing in on reaching an agreement with Ajax Amsterdam for midfielder Mohammed Kudus, according to the Athletic. The report reveals that the Hammers have submitted an offer worth €41m, alongside €3m in add-ons, which is expected to be accepted by Ajax, whilst personal terms are in the works for the 23-year-old, who would likely join on a five-year deal.
– Manchester City have made an initial approach to Wolverhampton Wanderers for midfielder Matheus Nunes, according to Fabrizio Romano. Pep Guardiola’s side have reportedly made a proposal worth €50m, alongside add-ons. The 24-year-old is understood to have already agreed to personal terms with City, leaving the two clubs to reach an agreement before the transfer window closes.
