Ancelotti: PSG not interested in Lichtsteiner or Debuchy

The 53-year-old trainer has revealed that his team is not looking into the possibility of acquiring either of the internationals.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that the club is not interested in signing Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus, and has also ruled out a move for Lille fullback Mathieu Debuchy.

The French capital club was expected to announce the arrival of veteran Anthony Reveillere from Lyon last week, but the deal has fallen through. These developments have reportedly rekindled PSG's interest in the Juventus right back, but Ancelotti has moved to squash such claims and insisted that Lichtsteiner is not in PSG's plans.

"It is not remotely true that we are interested in Lichtsteiner," Ancelotti said in a press conference on the eve of the trip to Ajaccio on Friday. "We do want a right back, but we are looking for a Frenchman for that role.

"It definitely will not be Debuchy however, who is a player of Lille."

The France international has already been involved in a long-running transfer saga over the summer, regarding a prospective switch to Premier League outfit Newcastle United.

PSG began its Ligue 1 campaign last weekend, drawing 2-2 with Lorient thanks to two goals from new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
