Paris Saint-Germain have joined the race to sign Benfica right-back Nelson Semedo, and the Ligue 1 runners-up seem to have already made contact with the defender.

According to O Jogo, Benfica’s clash with V. Guimarães may have been the farewell to Nélson Semedo. Benfica, who won their 4th consecutive and 36th Primeira Liga title this season, are said to be already surrounded by top European clubs in order to swoop their highly rated right-back.

Semedo, who is also a target for Manchester City, is now on PSG’s list of reinforcements for 2017/18 as well. The Ligue 1 side, who saw a series of four consecutive titles interrupted this year by Monaco, have already begun contact with the Portugal international.

Benfica’s President Luis Filipe Vieira has reportedly put a price tag of  €40 million on the 23-year-old, and according to the Portuguese newspaper, Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to invest millions in order to reshape their squad.

One of PSG’s main reasons for interest in Nélson Semedo is because of manager Unai Emery, as the PSG boss has been regarded as a great admirer of the defender.

Bayern Munich, Inter, Barcelona, Arsenal, and Manchester United have also been reportedly linked to the Portuguese.
