PSG line-up summer transfers

Kolkata, March 13: French giants Paris Saint-Germain have joined in the battle to sign David De Gea this summer, according to reports in France.

The Ligue 1 champions-elect are looking to strengthen in more areas at the end of the campaign, following their top-heavy transfer business last year.

Despite that fact that Alphonse Areola has impressed in between the sticks, the PSG hierarchy are keen on bringing in a big-name goalkeeper.

Telefoot reports that Manchester United superstar David De Gea, 27, is one of a number of a elite candidates the club are looking at.

Manchester United have no plans to sell the Spaniard, who has once again been their stand-out player this season, and it would take a monumental offer to even catch their attention.

However, PSG do have what it takes to make that kind of offer that could make the Red Devils rethink.

Pepe Reina's imminent arrival at AC Milan means Italian prodigy Gianluigi Donnarumma is likely to leave in summer.

The Italy international, 19, would represent a more realistic option, and could be available for a fee well below his market value should the Rossoneri fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Jan Oblak is another stopper PSG would be interested in, and the Atletico Madrid man has a buy-out clause set at £86million.

PSG have also been linked with Roma stoppe Alisson Becker who has made quite a reputation for himself in Europe.

Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois is the final name on the French side's list but Real Madrid are also monitoring the situation regarding Chelsea's No 1.

Overall, it seems that PSG are desperate to land a big-name keeper in the summer and are keeping all major options open.
