Laurent Blanc has reiterated his interest in Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye, but he isn't yet certain whether or not he will add to his squad further.
Speaking just days before the Ligue 1 season commences, the World Cup winner once again admitted his admiration for the France international's ability.
Cabaye spent seven seasons with Lille in the premier French division, so it is likely that his transition back to the league would be seamless.
He enjoyed much success with Newcastle in his first year, as the club just missed out on Champions League qualification.
However, last season was less pleasant for the Tyneside team, who were plagued by the threat of relegation throughout the campaign. It is not yet clear as to whether the 2012/13 season will be enough to deter him from staying in the north east.
Blanc's comments came from Le Parisien, who quote him as saying: "He’s a very good player. I haven’t changed my opinion. For the moment, he’s at Newcastle.
"I also read that Tottenham are interested in him. Newcastle, Tottenham, or Paris - I hope that he’ll still be at a big club in September."
This public airing of admiration could be a ploy that the PSG manager is using to tempt the midfielder back to his homeland.
But for now, it does seem as though any potential move is dependent on departures from the Parc des Princes.
Blanc also revealed: "Right now, I’d say no [PSG are not looking to buy more players] but, depending on how much we trim the squad by, it’s possible that we might take one extra player."
He has left the door open, and interest will intensify around the club's transfer dealings, especially amongst Newcastle fans.
If the likes of Clement Chantome leave the French capital, then the Toon Army will have to worry that their talismanic midfielder could be poached.
