Eintracht Frankfurt striker Randal Kolo Muani is set to complete his dramatic transfer to Paris Saint-Germain tonight after the deal looked dead in the water earlier today.
The 24-year-old Paris native traveled to France without the permission of his club on Wednesday in order to force through a permanent transfer to his hometown club.

The French international has been desperate for a move but with the clubs not confirming a move in time for the 5 PM German deadline to register new players, the transfer looked completely off.
However, according to Fabrizio Romano, the Parisians did not give up hope and now look to have got their man at the very last minute in a deal worth a total of $97m ($80.8m initially and $16.2m in performance-based add-ons).

Kolo Muani will sign a five-year contract after completing his medical and will spearhead an all-French front three alongside Bradley Barcola and World star Kylian Mbappe at the Parc des Princes this season.
