Chelsea target Presnel Kimpembe has reiterated he will be evaluating his future at Paris Saint-Germain this summer and wants to retain a key role in the team.

The Frenchman was Skipper Marquinhos’ main centre-back last season and made 30 appearances en route to the Ligue 1 title, although PSG are believed to prioritize a new centre-back in the summer window.

A €50m (£42m) offer for Milan Skriniar is rumored to have been made by Inter, but the Italian giants are sticking to just under €80m (£68m).

If PSG were to spend that much money on Skriniar, it would almost certainly mean the Slovakian would be a fixture in defense at the expense of Kimpembe.

Earlier this month, the 26-year-old said he would meet with the club’s new management – with Luis Campos now having replaced the axed sporting director Leonardo – to find out what the club’s plans are for him.

In his speech on Sunday, Kimpembe – whose contract expires in two years – reiterated this stance and suggested the role he is given next season will determine whether he embarks on a new contract.

“I said I’ll be 27 and that my next contract would be crucial,” Kimpembe said at a press conference during his international assignment with France.

“I want to know what the club’s project will look like. I didn’t say anything wrong.

“I joined the club when I was nine or ten years old. I think it’s a legitimate question to ask my club about the future project and what role I will get.

“Right now I’m concentrating on the French team and tomorrow’s game [against Croatia in the UEFA Nations League].’

PSG are set to sack Mauricio Pochettino despite last season’s title win, which will create further question marks over the future of several players who have played key roles under the Argentine manager.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, meanwhile, is looking to bring in a new left centre-back to replace Antonio Rudiger – who joined Real Madrid on a free transfer – and knows Kimpembe well from their time together in Paris.
