PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are interested in signing Erling Haaland to replace Real Madrid target Kylian Mbappe, according to reports.
The French side are believed to have contacted Haaland's agent Mino Raiola over the possibility of a move as they prepare for Mbappe's exit.
According to The Telegraph, PSG are considering making a last-minute swoop for the Borussia Dortmund striker in the coming days.
Rumours suggest a deal will be difficult at this late stage in the window and negotiations between PSG and Dortmund are yet to begin.
PSG are reportedly putting together a shortlist of potential replacements for Mbappe as Real continue their pursuit of the Frenchman.
Everton star Richarlison is thought to be one of those names on that list – and it now appears Haaland is another.
The 21-year-old has been one of the most prolific strikers in Europe since his move to Dortmund in January 2020, scoring 42 Bundesliga goals.
Real have submitted a second bid of £145million for Mbappe after their initial offer of £137m was rejected by PSG.
The Spanish giants are reportedly on the verge of agreeing a £154m fee with the Ligue 1 side for the forward after a summer-long chase.
It's believed Mbappe, who's existing deal runs out next June, isn't interested in signing a new contract after four years with PSG.
But the Parisian team haven't given up hope just yet, with sporting director Leonardo insisting: "PSG's position has always been to keep Kylian.
"That's been the aim for the last two years and it remains unchanged… and we are not going to sell a player for less than we paid for him."
PSG signed Mbappe on loan from Monaco in August 2017 before paying their French rivals £162m for his services a year later.
