French top women’s football league side Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have reportedly renewed their interest in Malawian star Tabitha Chawinga.
According to goal.com, PSG are among the top sides rumoured to be interested following a knee injury to star Ada Hegerberg in January.
PSG first expressed interest to sign the Malawi women’s national football team captain in 2017 while starring for Swedish side Kvarnsvedens, only for her current Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning to pull a fast one on them and got her on board.
The 24-year-old prolific marksman was quoted as having confirmed that she has received concrete offers from some of the top women’s clubs in Europe.
However, Chawinga says she is focused on helping her Chinese club to success this season, but will be ready to listen to offers at the end of the season.
In an interview yesterday, she said: “The offers keep on coming. They are quite a number of them, but I do not want my attention to be distracted by that.
“My focus is to lead Jingsu Suning to another successful season. Otherwise, my agent will take care of that [the offers].
“As I said earlier, priority will be to extend my stay here [at Jiangsu Suning, but if we’ll not agree on the terms, then I will move on,” she said.
In February this year, Jiangsu Suning turned down a request from another top French side Olympique Lyonnais to sign Tabitha on loan.
Lyon wanted to sign Chawinga on a six-month loan deal following the indefinite suspension of all football competitions in China in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Tabitha is considered the best player in China, having swept all annual individual awards last season, including Player of the Year, Golden Boot Award and Outstanding Player of the Season.
