Leeds United target Arnaud Kalimuendo will only be free to leave PSG if his club signs a replacement.

The Whites have little under two weeks before their Premier League season kicks off with a home clash against Wolves.

Jesse Marsch has more or less assembled his squad for this term, but there is still the lingering concern of the lack of a new striker.

While the club waits on Charles De Ketelaere news, PSG striker Arnaud Kalimuendo is reportedly a fallback option for Victor Orta.

After a stellar loan spell with Lens, Kalimuendo could be in line to leave PSG, should the right offer come in.

Now, RMC Sport are claiming that the Ligue 1 giants will consider selling their young striker if they source a replacement first.

PSG boss Christoph Galtier has been very impressed with Kalimuendo’s contributions in pre-season, including two goals during their tour of Japan, to the point where he could easily be part of the plans this season.

If a club can offer the 20-year-old a starting role, then he is expected to strongly consider a move, knowing he is unlikely to have a similar key role at the Parc des Princes.

Should Leeds move onto Kalimuendo?

Yes

Yes

No

No

As much as the sentiment is right for Galtier and PSG to say that they want to play Kalimuendo, I can’t see him having much of a future there.

If PSG wanted a striker to take them forward, they would simply sign one, as they have done in the past.

Kalimuendo will do much better to move away in this window, and Leeds would be a great move for him.

The only issue here is that it’s quite obvious that he’s our backup plan, and it might not speak well to him knowing that he wasn’t our first option.
