Paris Saint-Germain’s pursuit of Victor Osimhen came to an end sooner than expected, with the Parisiens making an initial €130 million offer for the Napoli striker.

According to RMC Sport, the Ligue 1 club has selected his Napoli teammate Kvicha Kvaratskhelia as a suitable replacement for Kylian Mbappé, who is on his way to Real Madrid.

Osimhen is also strongly linked with Chelsea, who made an offer of €90 million plus Romelu Lukaku for the Nigerian striker just a day after PSG made a €90 million plus €40 million first offer that went viral.
