Paris Saint-Germain target Randal Kolo Muani has reportedly communicated his desire to leave to the Eintracht Frankfurt powerbrokers.
According to RMC Sport, the 24-year-old forward sees his immediate future outside the Deutsche Bank Park amid talks linking him with PSG and Bayern Munich.
Despite penning a five-year contract upon his arrival from Nantes only last summer, the Frenchman is keen to continue his development at a more prominent location.
His impressive maiden season with Die Adler has earned him the right to dream big, turning him into one of the most sought-after prospects in the European market.
An eye-catching tally of 23 goals and 17 assists across 46 competitive appearances for Frankfurt has positioned Kolo Muani high on PSG’s list of summer priorities.
However, the Germans’ lofty requirements have derailed Les Parisiens’ ambitions, forcing Luis Enrique’s team to explore other avenues, including the one leading to Benfica’s Goncalo Ramos.
It’s believed that Frankfurt won’t let their gem depart the club for less than €100 million, even though they didn’t spend a dime to acquire his signature a year ago.
Ramos has already agreed personal terms with the record-time Ligue 1 champions, but Benfica are holding out for an initial €80m plus add-ons to part ways with their most prized asset.
The Portuguese forward’s proposed transfer to the Parc des Princes may not affect PSG’s idea of bringing Kolo Muani back to his homeland, especially if Kylian Mbappe leaves Paris in the coming weeks.
Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is on the verge of joining Enrique’s troops, which could jeopardise the Frenchman’s hopes of returning to the country.
If Daniel Levy opts for another snub, the Bavarians will turn to other targets, with Kolo Muani’s name featuring close to the top of their list of priorities.
