1. Jonathan David (Lille)
Although in terms of class, Jonathan David can hardly be compared with Kylian Mbappe, but the Canadian player’s many years of experience playing football in Ligue 1 will help him score points in the eyes of the Paris Saint-Germain board of directors. After 132 appearances for Lille, the 24-year-old player scored 60 goals, a relatively impressive achievement.
Many big teams across Europe have expressed their desire to exchange for the services of the striker born in 2000 recently. The contract between him and Lille has a contract break clause of about 52 million euros. If Kylian Mbappe leaves, PSG should consider this name.
2. Lois Openda (RB Leipzig)
After 28 appearances for RB Leipzig in all competitions, Lois Openda has bagged 18 goals and 4 assists. This achievement helped him become one of the most notable strikers in Europe.
The Belgian striker once played football in Ligue 1, when he scored 21 goals, thereby helping Lens win the right to participate in this season’s Champions League. Lois Openda landed at RB Leipzig in the summer of 2023 to fill the position left by Christopher Nkunku.
The 23-year-old player has a contract release clause of about 80 million euros in 2025. But with RB Leipzig’s buying and selling policy in the transfer market, they are willing to sell Lois Openda if the price is right.
3. Alexander Isak (Newcastle United)
The home team of St James’ Park needs to comply with the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainable Development (PSR) rules, forcing them to sell a few pillars to avoid punishment. This will be an opportunity for Paris Saint-Germain to own Alexander Isak.
Since moving to Newcastle United for a record transfer fee, the Swedish striker has affirmed his ability when he scored 20 goals in just 27 times wearing the “Magpies” shirt in the Premier League.
The only worrying thing is that the former Real Sociedad player is quite susceptible to injuries. If he is in good shape, he can completely become a potential name to replace Kylian Mbappe at Parc des Princes.
4. Marcus Rashford (Manchester United)
Paris Saint-Germain once said they wanted the services of Marcus Rashford last season, seeing the English striker score 30 goals in all competitions and hold the title of Manchester’s best player of the season. United.
However, entering this season, he is having difficulty scoring goals, along with problems off the field. If Paris Saint-Germain has not yet given up on the idea of attracting a player wearing the number 10 shirt, We cannot rule out the possibility that the Ligue 1 representative will have the services of the 26-year-old striker.
5. Lautaro Martinez (Inter Milan)
The Argentine striker is the perfect replacement for Kylian Mbappe as he is in extremely impressive form in Serie A this season. Lautaro Martinez has currently pocketed 19 goals in 20 appearances, but the problem is sometimes not about money.
Lautaro Martinez repeatedly confessed his love for the “Nerazzurri” and was ready to extend his contract. He hopes to conquer titles with Inter Milan. If they want the Argentine striker to land at Parc des Princes, PSG will likely have to spend a huge amount of money on the Serie A representative.
