Paris Saint-Germain will make Erling Haaland their top transfer target if Kylian Mbappe leaves the French capital — with Robert Lewandowski their back-up option.
Mbappe, 22, continues to be linked with a move to LaLiga giants Real Madrid and his departure appears increasingly inevitable given there are less than nine months remaining on his current contract.
Should he indeed join Los Blancos, Le10sport report that PSG’s sporting director Leonardo already has a shortlist of potential replacements drawn up.
Top of that list is Borussia Dortmund hotshot Haaland, with the 21-year-old scoring sensation set to be embroiled in his own transfer saga in 2022.
Long-running talk of a £68million release clause becoming active in the Norwegian’s contract is set to spark a scramble for his signature — and Les Parisiens intend to win the race.
However, while Mbappe’s exit would make his wage demands no object, the club are aware that Haaland will have plenty of offers on the table and have an alternative solution in mind if required.
That alternative is Bayern Munich marksman Lewandowski, with the 33-year-old reported earlier this term to be keen on a ‘new challenge’ away from the Bundesliga champions.
The Polish international netted 56 goals for club and country last season and already has 13 goals in 11 outings for the Bavarians in 2021-22 prior to their Sunday clash with Bayer Leverkusen.
Again, interest will inevitably be high in the coming transfer windows so the French club will need to act quickly to line up a deal.
As well as landing one of the two aforementioned stars, wantaway Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic could also be heading for the Parc des Princes.
The Serbian striker, 21, has refused to sign a new deal with his Italian employers and looks sure to be on the move next summer.
PSG will throw their hat in the ring according to the report – though Tottenham, Newcastle and Liverpool have all also been linked in recent weeks.
