2 Afcon winners on PSG's 'chopping block'

World News

Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly put five stars up for sale, including a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations-winning duo.

The French giants recently confirmed the sale of goalkeeper Alphonse Areola to Premier League outfit West Ham United for £7.75 million (R150 million), per Sky Sports.

With the Parisians' new football advisor Luis Campos said to have initiated a revamp of the squad, more players are set to make their way through the Parc des Princes' exit door. 

According to L'Equipe, the club is now ready to follow Areola's departure with the offloading of another goalkeeper as well as the Senegalese pair of Idrissa Gueye and Abdou Diallo, who were part of the Lions of Teranga team that triumphed at Afcon 2021 in February.

In the January window, Diallo was linked with a switch to AC Milan, and it is understood the Serie A giants' interest in the player has not died down, with transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reporting that the Italian champions are still in the running to sign the defender.

"Abdou Diallo has many proposals so he could leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer. AC Milan are interested in signing him, not the only name – he was already on Paolo Maldini's list last January," Romano wrote on Twitter.

Diallo's compatriot Gueye has one year left on his contract, and the Ligue 1 club is understood to be ready to cash in on him rather than risk losing the midfielder as a free agent next season.

Spanish shot-stopper Sergio Rico is also among those who could be headed out of the Parc des Princes after spending the second half of last season out on loan at LaLiga minnows Mallorca.

The 28-year-old failed to impress on his return to Spain, conceding 29 goals in 13 appearances.

Germany international Thilo Kehrer and 20-year-old forward Arnaud Kalimuendo, who was loaned out to Lens for the 2021/22 campaign, are also believed to be on the club's chopping block.
