Blanc hints at January swoop amid Pogba rumours

The 48-year-old has stated his intentions in possibly bringing in a midfielder with the Juventus star linked with les Parisiens in recent weeks

Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc has revealed he may look to bolster his midfield options in the January transfer window.

The Ligue 1 champions have been strongly linked with a move for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba and Blanc has now further fuelled speculation that PSG could make a move for the France international this winter, although he has insisted that he is happy with his current squad.

"We may perhaps add another element in midfield. But if I keep the same squad, I'll be very happy," Blanc said at a press conference.

"I am very happy with my squad and I want to keep it the way it is. It's not too big, but there is a lot of quality. The competition for places is very healthy and gets the best out of the squad."

PSG are unbeaten in their last 26 competitive outings, and sit four points clear of second-placed Lille at the top of Ligue 1 ahead of Sunday's home clash with Lyon.

However, Blanc remains wary of complacency setting into his side and believes remaining ahead will be a challenge.

"We are currently playing better than our opponents, but there's no such thing as an easy match, even if the score suggests otherwise," he continued.

"We beat Reims 3-0, but it wasn't an easy match. We cannot afford to drop our guard.

"Our opponents are always very motivated against us, at home or away. If we are not at 100 per cent, they can cause us some problems."
