Amid rumours Chelsea is interested in his signature, Paris Saint-Germain defender Presnel Kimpembe is asking the club for clarity.

Paris Saint-Germain defender Presnel Kimpembe has asked the club to explain its “project” and what his role will be in it ahead of contract negotiations.

The 26-year-old started has become a central figure in PSG’s first team, making 41 appearances across all competitions in the 2021-22 campaign.

However, it has been suggested that the French giants are in the market for a new centre-back.

With Inter’s defender, Milan Skriniar rumoured to be on their radar.

In turn, Premier League side Chelsea – managed by former Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel – are said to have expressed an interest in acquiring Kimpembe if they are unable to sign his France team-mate Jules Kounde from Sevilla.

Earlier this month, Kimpembe cast doubt on his future when saying it was a “key moment” in his career.

With only two years left on his contract at Paris Saint-Germain.

Some perceived it to be a hint that he was potentially angling for a move.

And while he did look to clarify his comments on Sunday.

Presnel Kimpembe reiterated the importance of knowing PSG’s vision for him.

Speaking ahead of France’s Nations League clash with Croatia on Monday, Presnel Kimpembe said:

“I told Paris Saint-Germain that I’m almost 27 years old, that my next contract will be decisive.

“And that I wanted to know what the club’s project was.

“I didn’t say anything bad. And I arrived at the club when I was 9-10 years old.

“I think it makes sense to ask what the future project is and what role I’ll be given within it.

“But, at the moment, I’m focused on the French team and [Monday’s] match to finish this season well.”
