Paris Saint German are close to signing CSKA Moscow midfielder Milos Krasic according to reports in France.
The 23-year-old is expected to sign a four-and-a-half-year deal with the club after negotiations with the Russian side are finalised.
PSG made an initial bid of €3million (£2.2million) for the Serbia international but the Moscow side wants in the region of €5million (£3.7million).
Coach Paul Le Guen confirmed the rumours on the club's official website: "We are still looking for a right midfielder.
"Milos Krasic is one of the players we have contacted, but there are other ones."
Meanwhile, Marcello Gallardo has confirmed he has cancelled his contract with PSG after just one disappointing year in the French capital.
Gallardo has struggled to cement a first-team place at Parc des Princes since his move from River Plate last year.
The 32-year-old Argentinean is expected to join Major League Soccer side Washington and insists he does not regret his decision to join PSG.
Sadness and relief
"It is a moment of sadness and relief," he told L'Equipe. "It was difficult, I didn't play a lot, but anyway I had good moments.
"I have some regrets, but not the one to have joined Paris.
"I want to thank all the fans, who always behaved very well towards me. I have decided to go on my professional career in the US league."
