Kalimuendo has been at PSG since 2012 when he joined the Paris club’s youth set-up and made his professional debut in 2020. The forward spent the last two seasons on loan at Lens, where he scored 19 Ligue 1 goals across 60 appearances.

Aside from Rennes, Leeds United were also interested in the talented PSG youngster.

A few weeks back, it was reported by 90min that Leeds were on the verge of an agreement to sign Kalimuendo from the Ligue 1 champions. The report stated that the Yorkshire club were willing to pay £21m for the 20-year-old, with the Premier League club said to be confident in securing the youngster.

However, that never materialised and Kalimuendo is now on his way to Rennes as part of a €25m deal.
