Paris Saint-Germain prepares to navigate the upcoming season without star player Kylian Mbappé, who is set to depart, the French champions are already strategizing for the future. Among their considerations is the potential acquisition of Jean-Philippe Mateta, a prolific striker of Franco-Congolese descent currently plying his trade at Crystal Palace.

Reports from Sun Sport indicate that PSG has identified Mateta as a target to bolster their attacking options as they look to build a new project without Mbappé’s influence.

Mateta, 26, has showcased his goal-scoring prowess during his tenure at Crystal Palace, netting an impressive 16 goals and providing 4 assists in 38 appearances across all competitions.

His standout performances have not gone unnoticed, drawing interest from several clubs in the lead-up to the summer transfer window.

Currently under contract with Crystal Palace until June 2026, Mateta’s market value is estimated at 10 million euros.

His contributions on the field are complemented by an annual salary of nearly 3 million euros, reflecting his significance within the squad.

As PSG navigates the complexities of rebuilding their squad in the absence of Mbappé, Mateta emerges as a potential solution to bolster their attacking firepower.

With his proven track record and goal-scoring ability, Mateta could provide the Parisian club with a valuable asset in their pursuit of continued success on the domestic and European fronts.

While negotiations and discussions are likely to ensue in the coming weeks, PSG’s interest in Mateta signals their proactive approach to squad building as they prepare for the challenges that lie ahead in the new season.
