Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly favourites to sign Eintracht Frankfurt striker Randal Kolo Muani, amid competition from Manchester United and Bayern Munich.
Hugo Ekitike has converted his loan move into a permanent deal, while Milan Skriniar and Marco Asensio have joined on free transfers following the expiry of their contracts at Inter Milan and Real Madrid respectively.
PSG are now expected to turn their attention to signing a new number nine, and Kolo Muani has emerged as their primary target.
The Parisians had previously been linked with a move for Victor Osimhen, but Napoli's £150m valuation appears to have halted their pursuit, resulting in their focus turning to Kolo Muani.
The Frenchman has also attracted interest from Man United, Bayern and Tottenham Hotspur after scoring 23 goals and providing 17 assists in 46 appearances last term.
According to The Independent, PSG have made positive steps in their pursuit and are now leading the race to secure the services of Kolo Muani.
PSG have supposedly convinced Kolo Muani that the chance to return to his native France will benefit him at this point of his career.
With four years left to run on his contract, Frankfurt were initially looking to receive a fee in the region of £100m.
However, PSG are hoping to lower that valuation and reach a compromise with the Bundesliga side over a deal worth £80m.
Bayern, meanwhile, were considered favourites to sign Kolo Muani a few months ago, but the latest developments appear to have influenced their decision to pursue a move for Tottenham's Harry Kane.
