PSG poised to land Julian Weigl

Paris Saint-Germain appear to have a genuine interest in signing Julian Weigl this summer.

According to a report from Calciomercato, Paris Saint-Germain are poised to land Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl.

The Germany international was signed by Borussia Dortmund in July 2015 from 1860 Munich for a fee of 2.5 million euros. The 22-year-old has a contract until 2021 with the club.

Weigl has played 127 times for Borussia Dortmund since signing from 1860 Munich, scoring two goals and creating one assist in that time.

The 22-year-old is a great talent, almost always reliable when played.

Julian Weigl has represented Germany at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 16 caps and scoring one goal, before making his senior international debut in May 2016. As a member of Germany national football team, Weigl won five caps.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Paris Saint-Germain.

Thomas Tuchel has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe. He is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.

Julian Weigl has the talent to play many roles in midfield.

According to Calciomercato (via BILD), “Borussia Dortmund midfielder is wanted by French giants Paris Saint-Germain this summer. Weigl has become one of the most wanted central midfielders ever since he rose to prominence under the tutelage of Thomas Tuchel at Dortmund as a teenager. The 22-year-old could appear in only 25 Bundesliga games last season. BILD report that Tuchel wants to reunite with Weigl at Paris Saint-Germain, with the midfielder valued at 80 million euros. Manchester City have also been linked with the German.”


Borussia Dortmund would be wise to keep the Germany international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.

Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Paris Saint-Germain.

It will be interesting to see whether Paris Saint-Germain will make their move during the summer transfer window.
