Report: Kylian Mbappe demands PSG to sign £53m Tottenham target this summer

Kylian Mbappe is said to have expressed a desire for Paris Saint-Germain to sign Pau Torres during the upcoming summer transfer window, however, there are also rumors of interest from Tottenham in the Villarreal defender. 

As per AS, Mbappe is expected to play a significant role in PSG’s transfer plans and is keen for the club’s recruitment chief, Luis Campos, to bring in players who can enhance the team’s performance, including Torres. 

The release clause of €60m (£53m) makes Torres a feasible target for PSG, but according to  90min, Tottenham are also eyeing the Spanish international who is expected to leave Villarreal at the end of the season amid mounting transfer speculation.

While it is true that Premier League interest can be a significant factor in a player’s decision to move to England, Mbappe’s personal desire to have Torres at PSG could give the French team an advantage in signing the Villarreal defender over Tottenham during the upcoming transfer window.

It is true that Torres is widely regarded as one of the top defenders in La Liga and is expected to play for a major European club in the future. 

With Mbappe pushing for PSG to sign him, it may be challenging for Torres to turn down such an offer during the transfer window.

 For Tottenham, missing out on Torres would not be catastrophic, but it could prove difficult for them to identify a center-back of his caliber. Torres would have been an ideal signing for Spurs this summer under Antonio Conte’s leadership.

It is remarkable that a player like Mbappe has such influence over a club like PSG, but this is the reality of modern football. Mbappe’s desire to bring Torres to PSG could deal a significant blow to Tottenham’s transfer plans this summer.

 While Torres may not be Spurs’ first-choice center-back, he is still a player that many fans would like to see at the club. 

However, PSG’s interest could potentially disrupt Tottenham’s pursuit of the Villarreal defender.
