Paris Saint-Germain are keen to recruit a midfielder in the January transfer window to replace Adrien Rabiot, but are unlikely to sign either Fabinho or Cesc Fabregas.
Rabiot has decided against extending his contract at Parc des Princes, and will either leave the club in the January transfer window or sit on the bench until the summer, when he will be able to depart on a free transfer.
After initially struggling to force his way into Jurgen Klopp's plans Fabinho has played 90 minutes in Liverpool's last three games, and appears integral to the German manager's plans.
The Brazil international is viewed as unattainable by PSG at the turn of the year, with a loan particularly unlikely.
Fabregas would only cost around €8 million, but his salary is prohibitive, while Sarri is open to the possibility of keeping the midfielder.
Watford's Abdoulaye Doucoure is another potential target, although the Premier League club are unlikely to sanction a sale in the January transfer window given his importance to the club.
Nevertheless, PSG will continue to keep tabs on the player as they look to reinforce their midfield.
Thomas Tuchel's side would also like to purchase a defender to deepen their backline.
