In addition to the anticipated arrival of Portugal midfielder Renato Sanches, Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier stated on Thursday that he hopes for three other acquisitions before the end of the transfer season.
The Ligue 1 winners have added Vitinha, Nordi Mukiele, and youthful attacker Hugo Ekitike under Galtier, who was chosen last month to succeed Mauricio Pochettino.
Galtier and Sanches, both 24 years old, were coworkers at Lille, and they will soon be reunited.
Galtier, though, requested additional reinforcements before the end of August as PSG prepared for its opening league match of the new campaign on the road against Clermont on Saturday.
At a news conference, he stated, “I want a certain amount of players in my squad, guys who are very comparable in level, to perform well throughout the season and to create healthy competition.”
“But are these three players going to arrive quickly, later or not at all? I don’t know. I know the club is doing all it can to have a very competitive squad.”
