Paris Saint Germain are preparing a major bid to sign Monaco's Jerome Rothen.
The French wide man has been impressive during the Principality side's charge to the UEFA Champions League final and has also been linked with Barcelona, Manchester United and Chelsea in some quarters.
However, he was born in Paris and has always expressed an affection for the capital club.
The former Troyes winger does not want to talk about his future with the Gelsenkirchen date with Porto on the horizon, but PSG could offer in excess of é¼8 million.
Meanwhile, Juan Pablo Sorin is still in talks with the club although no agreement has yet been reached over a permanent deal.
With the likely departure of Gabriel Heinze to Valencia, Paris are keen on Lille's Eric Abidal but Lyon have also offered the defender a contract.
As Sochaux's Benoit Pedretti seems set for Marseille, PSG have been watching Sevilla's Marti.
