PSG approach Man City star Julian Alvarez over summer move

Manchester City striker Julian Alvarez is reportedly looking for a move to establish himself as a first-choice striker after playing second fiddle to Erling Braut Haaland for two seasons.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Paris Saint-Germain are interested in the Argentine international and have approached his camp.

Atletico Madrid have also been linked with a move for the former River Plate centre-forward, and other Premier League clubs are circling.

Alvarez joined the Cityzens in 2022 and helped the club win the treble, bagging 17 goals and two assists in his debut season.

He contributed 19 goals and 13 assists in 54 appearances this term.

Despite the increased opportunities, Alvarez is seeking a move away from City to a club where he will be the first-choice striker.

PSG are looking for a replacement for Kylian Mbappe and could consider a summer swoop for Alvarez to fill the void.

Atletico would be an excellent landing spot for the City striker. He would work with compatriot Diego Simeone, and his two-striker system suits him.

Chelsea could also be an option. The Blues are looking for a striker to lead their line and provide competition for Nicolas Jackson.

They reportedly had Victor Osimhen on their shortlist but considered him too expensive. His extensive injury record is also a concern.

Chelsea are now eyeing Benjamin Sesko but face stern competition from Arsenal and Manchester United.
