Paris Saint-Germain duo Mamadou Sakho and Guillaume Hoarau have expressed their excitement at the club's imminent signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic from AC Milan.
The Swedish international is poised to complete his move to the Parc des Princes on Wednesday and Sakho is in no doubt that the Ligue 1 outfit have acquired one of the best players in the world.
"Zlatan, he's a world star," the 22-year-old defender is quoted as saying by RMC Sport. "He's proven himself on the international stage.
"He's certainly a truly great player and he will bring a lot of things to the club."
Ibrahimovic's arrival could mean fewer first-team opportunities for Hoarau, but the France international is looking forward to learning from the prolific 30-year-old.
"He's a great player," the former Le Havre striker enthused. "From a personal standpoint, I can only make progress with him."
Ibrahimovic, who touched down in the French capital on Tuesday evening, is set to be presented to the press at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon.
