PSG Thomas Tuchel desperately wants a midfielder in Janaury


Tuchel confirms PSG are likely to sign a midfielder in January

With Marco Verratti out injured and Adrien Rabiot not available for selection due to a contract dispute, Paris Saint Germain boss Thomas Tuchel has described the club’s midfield situation as ” very very serious”, confirming that the Ligue 1 leaders are likely to dip into the January transfer window to bolster their options in the middle of the park.

PSG are set to face Manchester United in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League next month and the need for midfield reinforcements has been highlighted by the manager, with the club shortlisting Napoli’s Brazilian midfielder Allan, Watford’s Abdoulaye Doucoure and Everton’s Idrissa Gana Gueye as potential options.

“It’s January 21 and we have needs,” Tuchel told reporters ahead of a Coupe de France clash at home to Strasbourg on Wednesday.

“We lost Adrien Rabiot, Lass Diarra and Marco Verratti, the situation has not improved.

“We stay with our decision [on Rabiot] because Marco returns in a few weeks. We stay with our basic choice.

“We have recovered Dani Alves in this role but it is very, very serious for us. Who do I want? Yeah, yeah, I know. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you!

“Julian Draxler has the quality to play with us because he can adapt and he is very, very reliable in many positions.

“Dani Alves will play in the middle against Strasbourg, with his quality and mentality he has done incredible workouts. Draxler has a more offensive profile than he and Marquinhos.

“I have already talked a lot about Adrien and this subject. I can only repeat that it’s a thing between the club and him.”
