Paris Saint Germain are targeting a move for Manchester City defender Kolo Toure.


Talksport are reporting that the nouveau-riche Ligue 1 side want to tempt the Ivory Coast international away from Etihad Stadium.


It has been reported recently that Toure is unhappy at the lack of playing time he is being given by Roberto Mancini.


PSG are desperate to sign players in January to help re-invigorate their Ligue 1 title ambitions, so as to secure Champions League football next season.


The French capital side are currently sitting second in their division and have stuttered to a couple of poor results on recent weeks.


Toure would provide some defensive stability and the lure of regular first team football could tempt him across the channel.


The former Arsenal man has been ousted from the side in favour of a Joleon Lescott and Vincent Kompany partnership.


The current partnership developed during Toure’s eight-month absence due to a drugs ban.


PSG have sent huge amounts recently in signing players such as Javier Pastore, Kevin Gameiro and Jeremy Menez.


They are owned by the Qatari Investment Authority, who also have a major stake in the Al-Jazeera sports channels.


They have also been linked wihta move for another of Manchester City’s players, striker Carlos Tevez.
