Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak is not a transfer target for Liverpool in the summer transfer window, sources have told Sport Witness.

The 28-year-old followed Unai Emery from Sevilla to Parc des Princes in 2016. He struggled in his debut season with the Ligue 1 winners and was allowed to join West Bromwich Albion on a season-long loan deal last summer.

Krychowiak made 27 appearances for the Baggies in the Premier League last season and started three matches for Poland at the 2018 World Cup. The latter were knocked out from the group stages of the ongoing tournament in Russia.

The Sun reported on July 10th that the Merseyside club has identified the Polish international as a summer transfer target. The Reds saw Emre Can leave Anfield and join Juventus on a free transfer.

Jurgen Klopp had reportedly identified Krychowiak as the player to replace Can at Liverpool. The report even mentioned the former Borussia Dortmund manager was ‘keen’ on bringing the defensive midfielder to Anfield this summer.

Sport Witness understands there is no truth in the reports linking Krychowiak to Liverpool. He has returned to his parent club after a loan spell at West Brom and, so far, no decision has been taken on the midfielder’s future at PSG.
