Cherki is still targeted by PSG
Rejected by Lyon in January, Paris Saint-Germain are still targeting attacking midfielder Rayan Cherki. Parisian sports adviser Luis Campos makes Lyonnais a priority track for the next transfer window.
The career of Rayan Cherki (19 years old) is finally launched. Considered for several years as a future great but rarely established by his coaches at Olympique Lyonnais, the attacking midfielder took advantage of the arrival of Laurent Blanc between Rhône and Saône to settle in the eleven of his team since the start of the year 2023, with three goals and a decisive pass.
Paris does not forget Cherki
In addition to improving statistics, the youngster has mainly been one of the few attacking animators of his team in recent weeks. If everything is not yet perfect, especially in the game without the ball, Cherki has taken the keys to the game and made an impression with several very good performances. Which will not calm his courtiers, especially Paris Saint-Germain.
Eager to recruit the international Espoirs in January, the reigning French champion had come up against the refusal of Lyon despite an offer of more than 20 million euros, bonus included. The capital club has not, however, given up on the idea of bringing in talent from OL since the Parisian sports adviser Luis Campos still makes it a priority track, according to L’Equipe.
PSG are not alone
PSG plans to go back on the offensive during the next summer transfer window. However, the Parisian leaders will have to deal with competition from German and English clubs, not Newcastle. The Magpies want to recruit many young people with high potential and logically turn to Lyon talent. The current 5th in the Premier League led to first contacts last winter, without going any further.
In January, Cherki was not thrilled with the North East of England. Will he change his mind this summer? A qualification for Newcastle in C1 could be a tempting argument. In any case, the English training has the financial power necessary to complete such a file and an offer will work force raise the stakes.
