Paris: Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel has admitted that signing a top-class midfielder remains “a priority” for the French giants after their weaknesses were exposed in another below-par performance in the Champions League. PSG snatched a 2-2 draw at home against Napoli in midweek thanks to Angel di Maria’s injury time goal, but before that they were outmuscled in the centre of the pitch.

“Yes it is a priority. It was a priority and it still is because it is dangerous to always use Adri and Marco,” said Tuchel on Saturday. “It is too much at this level. We need a third top-level player to be able to play a 4-3-3.”
