Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that Paris Saint-Germain are close to signing Gregory van der Wiel from Ajax.
The Netherlands defender was linked with an exit from the Amsterdam Arena throughout the summer, and a deal taking him to the French capital now appears to be all but official.
The Dutchman is set to round off a summer of heavy spending for the Qatari-owned club, with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Thiago Silva having already joined PSG.
"Van der Wiel's signature shouldn't take too long," Ancelotti stated at a press conference.
"Christophe [Jallet] was our only player who could play on the right side of defence. He'll have to compete with Van er Wiel now, but I do not see that as a problem."
Ajax are reported to have received a sum of €5 million for the full-back, whose contract was set to expire at the end of the season.
Ancelotti's charges face Lille on Saturday as they look to end a run of three straight draws in Ligue 1.
