PSG coach look­ing for a striker to take pres­sure off Ca­vani

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Paris Saint-Ger­main coach Unai Emery is look­ing to re­cruit a striker in the Jan­uary trans­fer win­dow to take some pres­sure off top scorer Edin­son Ca­vani.

Ca­vani has scored 24 goals in all com­pe­ti­tions this sea­son, but the only other player scor­ing reg­u­larly is Brazil­ian winger Lu­cas, who has 10. Ar­gentina winger An­gel Di Maria has strug­gled to repli­cate his form from last sea­son, and has only four in 22 games so far this sea­son.

"We are look­ing at a player in at­tack to give Ca­vani a breather," Emery said af­ter PSG’s 2-0 win against Metz in the League Cup quar­ter­fi­nals on Wed­nes­day. "The club is open to re­cruit­ing play­ers who will im­prove our team and in­crease com­pe­ti­tion for places."

Emery added that he would be happy if PSG could sign "one or two good play­ers" dur­ing the win­dow.

Ger­many winger Ju­lian Draxler re­cently joined PSG from Wolfs­burg and scored in a 7-0 win against Bas­tia in the French Cup last week­end.

PSG has been linked in the Bri­tish me­dia with a move for Ar­se­nal striker Alexis Sanchez.
