Reports in France indicate that PSG have made an approach for Benoit Pedretti.Paris Saint Germain have once again been linked with Lyon midfielder Benoit Pedretti, as new coach Guy Lacombe looks to add new faces during the January transfer window.
The Ligue 1 outfit are currently searching for two new players as they look for reinforcements to aid their challenge in the New Year.
A striker remains a priority with Bonaventure Kalou set to travel to the African Cup of Nations, but speculation is rife that the capital club will pursue a move for Pedretti.
The accomplished midfielder has seen his stock fall after a summer move to OL, and Lacombe is keen to recruit the player he made captain during his time in charge of Sochaux.
With Modeste M'Bami and Edouard Cisse both underperforming there is a need to improve the midfield options at Parc des Princes, and reports in Le Parisien are indicating that PSG have made an approach for the Lyon man.
Pedretti is desperate for first team football as he looks to keep his World Cup dream alive, and his chances at Stade Gerland appear limited with Tiago, Juninho Pernambucano and Mahamadou Diarra all favoured by boss Gerard Houllier.
