Paris Saint Germain

Dortmund raid for Weigl key to Tuchel's summer plans

17th April 2019, 11:59 by Michael Holland

Paris Saint-Germain will make another move for Borussia Dortmund's Julian Weigl this summer as they seek to bolster their midfield.

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel is in need of some fresh options in the middle of the park heading into the summer with Adrien Rabiot among the players set to move on, and Weigl is said to be a top target.

Tuchel knows the 23-year-old well following their time together at Dortmund before the German left to take charge at PSG and a reunion could be on the cards, if reports are to be believed.

Manchester City have longed been linked with a move for Weigl, who they see as the perfect long-term replacement for the ageing Fernandinho, so PSG would face strong competition.

Weigl has been struggling for game time with BVB in recent weeks, with reports claiming he could now be available for a cut-price fee of £22million.
