Paris St Germain have completed the signing of Schalke defender Thilo Kehrer.

The 22-year-old has signed a five-year contract with the Ligue 1 champions after joining for a reported £33million.

The highly-rated Germany Under-21 international, who helped Schalke to a second-placed finish in the Bundesliga last season, will link up with countryman Thomas Tuchel, who is in charge at the Parc des Princes.

Kehrer said on the PSG website: “Everyone in Europe knows how strong and exciting the Paris St Germain project is and I couldn’t think of a better club for me to continue my progression and reach my objectives.

“I am going to meet some extraordinary team-mates and work with a coach that has done a great job in Germany in recent years.

“Everyone is going to be important in helping me and I in turn hope to help the team with my qualities. I also can’t wait to play at the Parc des Princes, a legendary stadium in European football.”

Real Betis and Sevilla are both interested in Inter midfielder Joao Mario, according to CalcioMercato.

The Serie A side were hoping to ship the midfielder out on loan to the Premier League, but with the window closed, Betis and Sevilla have now emerged as favourites to land the 25-year-old.

The Portuguese international joined Inter in a near €40 million move from Sporting Lisbon in 2016 but failed to shine which saw him sent out on loan for the second half of last season to West Ham.

Paul Pogba still wants to move to Barcelona even if his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho can be mended, the Daily Mail reports.

The 25-year-old was linked with a move away from Old Trafford after apparent discontent with Mourinho. But he remained in situ when the window shut last Thursday in England.

The La Liga champions have already added Gremio midfielder Arthur, Bordeaux winger Malcom, Sevilla centre-back Clement Lenglet and Bayern Munich battler Arturo Vidal.

His desire to play for Barca is the driving force behind his wish to leave England’s northwest.
