Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is close to signing Luca Hernandez.

PSG is sure to win the French Ligue 1 title again this season, but they conceded one goal per game in the league, exposing their defensive insecurities. Aside from Marquinhos, they don’t have a reliable center back.
Fresnel Kimpembe has yet to return from a serious Achilles tendon injury. A ruptured Achilles tendon is a serious injury that can affect a player’s performance depending on his rehabilitation progress. Sergio Ramos is also available, but even he is considered to be well past his prime.
As a result, PSG are looking to bring in two new center backs. Shkriniar, who has been in talks since last winter, is the favorite to join PSG. Kim Min-jae is the other player who has been mentioned.
On the 23rd, French outlet le10 Sport reported that “PSG are considering signing Kim Min-jae as part of their search for a new central defender in addition to Schickriniar. PSG is close to completing the signing of Shkriniar, so PSG president Luis Campos can focus on other players. Campos will be looking at a number of players. He will look at a number of players, and Kim Min-jae would certainly be on that list,” the publication reported.
However, if they do decide to sign Lukaku, PSG will most likely not bring in Kim Min-jae. There’s no reason to bring in three center backs, and PSG is currently looking to reduce the size of their squad overall.
However, there are still variables. Bayern Munich are unwilling to let Lukaku go. According to L’Equipe, “Munich want Lukaku to sign a contract extension. It will be difficult for PSG to convince them.” Lukaku became the club’s most expensive transfer in history when he moved to Munich for 80 million euros ($118.3 billion).
Lukaku can play on the flanks but is primarily a center back. However, he hasn’t played much this season, losing out to Dayo Umamekano and Matthijs de Ligt. It is speculated that he wants a move to get more playing time.
