Paris Saint-Germain are set to complete the signing of Thilo Kehrer in a deal worth £37 million.
The French champions had been heavily linked with Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng but the club have abandoned their pursuit of the 29-year-old.
Instead, opting for Schalke’s exciting 21-year-old defender.
Kehrer broke into the first team in 2015, making his Bundesliga debut in the 15/16 campaign. The season after, he featured in 16 league games.
And, last season, the defender played 27 top flight matches, scoring three goals.
Ahead of the new season, PSG have also snapped up legendary Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon on a free transfer.
Anyway, Kehrer will bolster Thomas Tuchel’s defensive line which includes the likes of Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe, among others.
