Paris Saint-Germain make contact with Ajax star Antony

Paris Saint-Germain are interested in Ajax star Antony and have made initial contact with his representatives, reports Le10Sport.

The Brazilian winger is one of the hottest properties in Europe after making a huge impact at Ajax this season, netting 12 goals and ten assists in all competitions.

His performances in the Champions League haven’t gone unnoticed. The 22-year-old played a big part in Ajax’s undefeated run in the group stage before losing to Benfica in the group stage.

With the mounting interest from Europe’s top clubs, the Dutch giants could sell Antony this summer.

PSG are looking for attacking reinforcements as both Mauro Icadri and Angel Di Maria face an uncertain future, with the latter’s contract expiring this summer.

Les Parisiens are not interested in extending Di Maria’s stay due to his age, while Icardi has struggled for regular game time.

The Ligue 1 champions are heading towards a summer overhaul as they have been left disappointed with their continuous failure in the Champions League.

While their transfer policy has always been signing world-class superstars, PSG might change it by betting on top-quality youngsters who can lay a strong foundation for the future.

In the case of Antony, PSG could face stiff competition from the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Barcelona for his signing.

Besides the nine-capped Brazilian star, PSG are also paying close attention to Ousmane Dembele’s situation at Barcelona.

Despite neglecting a renewal offer earlier, the French winger is now slowly leaning towards the idea of staying put at Camp Nou. 

The Catalan giants are also set for fresh talks with Dembele’s representatives regarding a contract extension.

PSG believe they could land Dembele for free this summer if the Blaugrana fail in their efforts.
