The Parisians are keen to add a young midfielder to their ranks.

In the wake of a challenging season last year, Luis Campos has made a remarkable turnaround this summer in the transfer market. His signings have proven convincing so far, and it appears that Paris Saint-Germain is gearing up for another transfer race.

According to Foot Mercato, Campos has set his sights on Valencia midfielder Javi Guerra. The Spaniard has taken La Liga by storm since making his senior debut earlier this season, registering three goals and one assist in six matches. 

Currently sitting at third place in the Ligue 1 standings, PSG may not be experiencing its best start to a season in history. 

However, this year, the Parisians seem to be better organized and more cohesive on the pitch. This improvement can be attributed to the work of Luis Enrique and the recruitment campaign orchestrated by Luis Campos.

Nevertheless, there are still a few adjustments to be made, particularly in midfield. The Parisian midfield has welcomed the presence of the defensive midfielder, Manuel Ugarte, the emergence of Warren Zaïre-Emery, and the signing of Vitinha. However, there’s still a need for more depth, especially since the forced departure of Marco Verratti. 

Signing Guerra, however, could force PSG to face Barca in another transfer race. The Catalans are reportedly keen to sign the 20-year-old next summer as they search to find a back-up for Frenkie de Jong.

Guerra is under contract until 2027 at Valencia, with the club tying him down to a €100m release clause.
