Transfer Talk: Kimpembe to stay at PSG despite interest from Chelsea

The summer transfer window is here, and there’s plenty of gossip swirling about who’s moving where. Transfer Talk brings you all the latest buzz on rumours, comings and goings and, of course, done deals!

TOP STORY: Presnel Kimpembe is set to stay at PSG

Presnel Kimpembe looks set to stay put this summer, despite uncertainty over his future in the France capital, according to L’Equipe.

The 26-year-old centre-back has been on the radar of clubs in Europe in recent weeks, but after he impressed the Paris Saint-Germain staff in training, new manager Christopher Galtier now wants to keep him at Parc des Princes.

With Chelsea turning their attention to Leicester City defender Wesley Fofana, the Ligue 1 champions don’t expect to part ways with Kimpembe this summer, and having found clarity over his future, it is expected that he will feature in the squad for the league opener against Clermont on Saturday.

The France international is contracted at PSG until the summer of 2024, having last signed an extension in 2020.
