According to a report from Fichjes, Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain have set their sights on Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong as they continue to look for options to strengthen their midfield.

According to the outlet, PSG are seriously considering a move for the Netherlands international as they feel his acquisition will add a much-needed layer to their relatively weaker midfield.

De Jong is in demand

The whispers about De Jong’s future have been circulating for a while and heavyweights like Chelsea and Manchester United have previously flirted with the idea of signing the 26-year-old. 

Now, PSG are throwing their hat into the ring, hoping to bolster its midfield with his experience and skill. Interestingly, this request has come directly from their manager Luis Enrique.

PSG’s interest in De Jong is logical given their quest to fortify the heart of their team. Despite past investments in midfield talents, they are still hunting for someone who can turn the tide in crucial moments. 

While younger prospects like Gavi have been on their radar, it is clear that De Jong remains their primary target.

De Jong is happy at Barcelona

PSG’s aspirations of chasing the Dutchman might hit a roadblock as the player seems content with life at Barcelona and is not in a rush to depart. 

Despite PSG’s keenness, a move seems improbable even in the near future and this leaves PSG with the task of exploring other avenues to reinforce their midfield ahead of the upcoming season.

To sum up, PSG are actively pursuing de Jong to beef up their midfield, but the player’s allegiance to Barcelona appears firm for now. 

As far as Barcelona are concerned, it is certain that while they do not wish to entertain immediate offers, the midfielder’s exit is not entirely ruled out if a great offer comes along.
