Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) continues to work hard on the formation of its squad for next season. While they wait to see what happens with Kylian Mbappé, the Parisian club is outlining its team under the orders of Luis Enrique. So far, they have made six important additions, and now they are focused on strengthening their attack.
On PSG’s agenda is the name of Rasmus Hojlund, a young Atalanta striker, nicknamed the ‘new Haaland’. The 20-year-old Danish player has excelled in the Italian team and has captured the attention of several renowned clubs, including Manchester United.
The pearl of Serie A that PSG wants: Luis Enrique’s goal
At first, it seemed that the ‘red devils’ were the most interested in taking over the services of the promising goalscorer. However, in the last few hours, PSG would have broken into the race for his signing. Atalanta have reportedly turned down a £40m offer from United and are seeking double that amount to let him go. Faced with this situation, the Parisian team has shown interest in the player and could frustrate one of the express wishes of the United coach, Erik Ten Hag.
Rasmus Hojlund is considered one of the most promising young talents in Europe. Although his goalscoring numbers are not impressive – with 10 goals in 34 appearances for Atalanta last season – he is compared to Haaland due to his height, skill and speed, traits he shares with Manchester City’s Norwegian striker.
PSG is willing to make an effort to sign this young Serie A jewel. His incorporation would fit perfectly into the project of the Parisian club, which seeks to remain at the top of European football and aspire to win the long-awaited Champions League. The next few weeks will be key to find out if PSG will manage to get Hojlund’s services and add even more power to his already fearsome attack.
