Paris Saint-Germain have told Leeds United to pay £22 million if they want to sign Arnaud Kalimuendo this summer, according to Ben Jacobs.

The CBS Sports journalist has reported that club president is happy to sell the young striker now, but Christophe Galtier is not as content regarding a deal.

The Whites are in contact but interest is currently growing in Europe with Rennes the latest club to challenge for the signing with a stay in Ligue 1 potentially on the cards.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Jacobs shared the details regarding any possible deal for the young Frenchman in the coming weeks.

‘PSG have told Leeds they value Kalimuendo at £22m,” he wrote.

“Growing interest, including from Stade Rennais. Campos happy to sell now, but Galtier not as content. He likes Kalimuendo and has forged a strong early relationship with him.

“Galtier would prefer Icardi goes then club assess.”

Another Saga?

After waiting and watching for weeks with Charles De Ketelaere, it was finally officially confirmed that he made the move to AC Milan in the past week.

Now, all eyes are potentially on Kalimuendo, and it looks as though Campos has made his mind up regardless of what Galtier wants and that is an exit.

The young striker has shined for the past two seasons in the French top-flight for RC Lens on loan, and now despite impressing in pre-season, a chance at Paris looks unlikely.

Everyone knows that Neymar, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe will start every single game, so the chance to start more regularly in the Premier League could now appeal.

Victor Orta will be all over this one, with money now said to be available yet again to bring in another couple of new faces in the next three weeks.

All eyes on this one now, will we cough up the cash?
