PSG coach eyes Icardi to sign another forward

Ligue 1 champions have signed Hugo Ekitic from Reims, but saw Angel Di Maria depart on a free transfer, while Gaultier confirmed Arnaud Kalimuendo was closing in on a move from Rennes.

PSG may still have Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi to lead the line, but in a long and grueling season – complicated by the World Cup in Qatar – Gaultier wants to deepen his attack, DPA report.

“Yes, we want to bring in one more. We have a very busy schedule, so we would like to bring someone in,” he told a news conference on Saturday ahead of the Ligue 1 clash against Montpellier.

“The club is working hard on that. I’m in constant contact with Luis Campos (PSG football advisor), the board and president. We must not make any mistakes. We must not rush things. We have to do something realistic.

“There are no guarantees. I know the club won’t sign anyone for this. It’s going to need someone who can really bring something to the team and that’s what the club is working on.”

Another forward edge in the direction of exit is Mauro Icardi, with Gaultier saying the club is exploring options for the Argentine international regarding the transfer.

“It hasn’t been easy. His absence from the team last week was due to a sporting choice, I saw him say at the beginning of the week that I am going to shorten the team. I am not going to work with 25 . players,” Gaultier explained.

“Whether he has offers that he might like, I don’t know. The club is working on that, we are working with Icardi to find the best possible solution. He has had a lot of playing time last season. was less and I think it’s important for him to do that.

“Whether he specifically wants to play in the Champions League, I don’t know. In the interest of the club, we want him to find the best solution, which is a club where he can show his quality.

“He’s had a tough few years and with his experience playing somewhere different and a better environment, that could allow him to start his career again,” he added.
