Sevilla have turned down an offer for goalkeeper Yassine Bounou from French champions PSG this summer, as per Football Espana.
Ligue 1 giants PSG have gone through a series of changes this summer, including the arrival of a new manager Luis Enrique and the exits of stars such as Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos. Enrique arrives with a distinct playing style which requires specific profiles, some of which he has acquired.
PSG have been on the hunt of a new goalkeeper to provide competition for Gianluigi Donnarumma, and having considered the likes of Kepa Arrizabalaga and Hugo Lloris, they have made an offer for Sevilla goaltender Bounou. The Spanish side rejected their first offer of £10.3m for the Moroccan goalkeeper and are holding out for around £17m.
The French side are expected to return for the 32-year-old, who has also been linked with a move to Aston Villa this summer. He has a contract until 2025 and his club can afford to hold out for their asking price.
PSG keen on Yassine Bounou challenge for Donnarumma
Morocco international Bounou is as excellent a challenger as PSG can hope for Donnarumma. The former Girona man excels with his shot-stopping and with his ball-playing skills. He is also a shootout expert, as he showed in the UEFA Europa League final and the FIFA World Cup with his country.
PSG are in the conversation for a new goalkeeper this summer only because of the unfortunate injury picked up by Sergio Rico following a freak accident during the 2022-23 season.
Les Parisiens will be a good destination for Bounou if they manage to agree a fee with Sevilla, and he will be a top addition to their team.
