Looking for a center-forward this summer to compensate for the departures of Edinson Cavani and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, PSG received the loan from Moise Kean at the very end of the transfer window. But Leonardo had a different goal.

This summer, Paris Saint-Germain had multiple targets in the market to bolster the squad. Especially in the offensive area. And with good reason, Eric released Maxim Choupo-Moting and Edinson Cavani, while Arnaud Kalimuendo was loaned to Lens. As a result, PSG did not have a replacement for Mauro Icardi, whose purchase option was exercised last May. After multiplying the tracks, Leonardo finally received the loan from Moise Kean in the final hours of the Everton transfer window. However, the Italian international wasn’t a priority for PSG.

Dembélé was Leonardo’s priority

According to Foot Mercato, Leonardo had made the return of Moussa Dembélé, who was trained at the capital’s club, a priority. As for the other recruits, PSG had tried to get an option-to-buy loan but OL, who opened the door to his striker’s exit, just wanted to hear of a dry transfer that the Capital Club couldn’t think about. And although the situation could have been settled at the end of the market, like Jeff Reine-Adelaïde, who was permanently loaned to OGC Nice in the final moments of the transfer window, PSG eventually turned to Moise Kean.
