Exclusive: PSG could sign two Bayern Munich players in swap deal, says French football expert

Arsenal in the frame for transfer of exciting midfielder, parent club still haven't decided his future

Paris Saint-Germain could sign one or two players from Bayern Munich this summer as part of a deal for Dutch midfielder Xavi Simons to move to the Allianz Arena, according to French football expert Jonathan Johnson.

Speaking exclusively to CaughtOffside for his latest Daily Briefing column, Johnson explained that PSG are not too keen to lose Simons to Bayern, but it seems like it’s a possibility once the player gets back to focusing on his future after Euro 2024.

Simons has shone on loan at RB Leipzig and it’s clear he’s a player with a big future in the game, even if it looks tricky for him to find room in Luis Enrique’s star-studded PSG side.

Johnson expects, however, that Simons could leave PSG if Bayern are ready to include players in the deal, with the journalist naming French winger Kingsley Coman as one realistic option that could appeal to the Ligue 1 giants, while German midfielder Joshua Kimmich could be another to watch out for, and perhaps even young French striker Mathys Tel.

“It’s impossible to see Coman going anywhere else in France at the moment, given the concerning issue of there still being no TV deal in place – a major problem for French football as a whole. I do think Bayern’s purge won’t stop at Coman, there are a number of other players they’d like to move on and I think Joshua Kimmich is another PSG will be keeping an eye on, while there’s potentially also interest in Mathys Tel, who we know is not happy to be staying behind Harry Kane in the pecking order in Munich.

If PSG end up doing a deal for Xavi Simons in the end, it is likely to focus on one or…
