8 goals the first season, 13 the second, Arnaud Kalimuendo’s two years on loan to RC Lens have paid off. The young striker was able to bring his finishing skills to a playful team, which almost grabbed a European place this season. The French international Espoirs also increased his playing time, from 1,391 to 2,402 minutes on the pitch in all competitions. This experience will be useful to him to approach the sequel which will be written at PSG, or elsewhere.
According to our information, the Sang-et-Or would like to bring him for a third year in a row, but it seems complicated. Kalimuendo wants to play in a European Cup. “Lens, it will remain as my home. I’ll see, I have ambitions, personal goals that I want to accomplish. Play Europe, for example. I am young, I do not close any doors, and we will see what will happen during the transfer window.reveals the 20-year-old player in an interview with SoFoot.
“It’s not all up to me”
Under contract until 2024 with PSG, the young striker could well stay in his training club this time but on the condition that he plays. This is what he must discuss with the new sports management, he who has remained in contact with the Parisian club during the season. “There is a reorganization at the level of the organization chart, which means that I have not yet had the opportunity to talk about the rest. (…) Then I will go on vacation, and we can discuss the project around a table.
Kalimuendo has only appeared 4 times for PSG but he believes his time has come despite stiff competition. “I know my abilities, I know what I can do. I did my two seasons at Lens, it worked pretty well, we’ll see. It’s not all up to me”, he warns all the same story to send the ball in the opposite camp. One thing is certain, Kalimuendo will be courted this summer. In addition to Newcastle or Leicester as we mentioned last April, French clubs are following his situation with great attention.
