PSG are competing for Koulibaly and Dele Alli

French PSG decided to strengthen the positions of defense and midfield with purchase of Kalidou Koulibaly and Dele Alli respectively.

Kalidou Koulibaly has been considered the first candidate for any top club for a center-back position for the past two years. Even though the last season was not the best for Napoli and the team took only seventh place, Koulibaly remains a tidbit for the European giants. At the same time, the Senegalese helped the Neapolitans win the Italian Cup, defeating Juventus Turin in the final match.

According to The Telegraph, PSG are outperforming rivals Manchester City in the fight for the defender. The Parisians are ready to shell out about 82 million euros for the footballer who should replace Thiago Silva in the future, which is why such a calculation is made on him. The Cityzens offer 75 million euros and even agreed on a contract with Kalidou, but Napoli are not satisfied with the named amount.

I think, in symbiosis with Kimpembe and Marquinhos, who lack a bit of experience due to their age, Koulibaly will help cement the defense of the French giants. PSG are also ready to buy Dele Alli from Tottenham, whom Jose Mourinho seems to have stopped counting on.

The Portuguese left out the controversial midfielder out of the line-up in the first two rounds of the Premier League against Everton and Southampton. In theory, the Englishman can give movement to Tuchel's team in the center of the field, which will make it possible to manage with small forces in the championship matches and will not lead to defeats by Lens and Marseille, as is happening now.

Although the reason for such a disastrous start for PSG is understandable. First of all, this is the absence of many players from the first squad, as was the case in the first round. Secondly, there is a lack of proper motivation after losing the Champions League final. The Champions League is an impregnable shrine for the players from Parc des Princes, so the loss in the decisive match hit the team's psychology hard, which is now reflected in the results.
