Al-Hilal interested in PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas

Al Hilal interested in PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas

Al-Hilal are considering a further raid on Paris Saint-Germain amid news they also have goalkeeper Keylor Navas on their radar.

French news publication Le Parisien claims that the Saudi Pro League club are very interested in the former Real Madrid shot-stopper.

They could act on their interest after finalising their move for Neymar, who is set to be announced as their latest marquee signing.

Navas joined PSG from Madrid four years ago and established himself as a first-team regular until Gianluigi Donnarumma arrived in 2021.

He has since been forced to play second fiddle to Donnarumma, who wasted no time establishing himself as one of the first names on the team sheet.

The Costa Rica international keeper spent last season on loan at Nottingham Forest, helping the Tricky Trees retain their top-flight status.

He made 17 Premier League appearances but kept just two clean sheets as Forest finished four points above the relegation zone.

However, his situation at the Parc des Princes has not changed, and he started PSG’s goalless draw against Lorient last weekend on the bench.

Navas has just 12 months left on his contract but has been pushed further down in the pecking order following the arrival of Arnau Tenas from Barcelona on a free transfer.

The record-time Ligue 1 champions are undergoing a massive squad overhaul, so they will not stand in his way if a suitable offer arrives.

There is no official proposal from Al-Hilal yet, with the Saudi club focusing on deals for Neymar and Marco Verratti for now.

However, they still have ample time to add Navas to their ranks as the Saudi transfer window remains open until September 8.

Neymar is only an announcement away from being their new mega-money signing, but they are also hoping to lure Verratti to the Middle East.

The Italian midfielder is reluctant to leave Europe despite approaching the latter stages of his illustrious career, but Al-Hilal are pushing to land his signature.
