Zenit St Petersberg midfielder Axel Witsel has admitted that a move to big-spending Paris St Germain would be appealing, if they were interested in signing him.
The Belgian international has been linked with a move to PSG after only one season with Russian giants Zenit St Petersburg. Witsel made the big-money move to Russia from Portuguese side Benfica in 2012, and following the transfer, he made 19 appearances for Zenit this season, scoring four goals.
And the rumours regarding the move have interested Witsel, who said that he would seriously consider any advances made by the French side.
He did, however, state that he is still committed to the Zenit cause, as they begin to prepare for the start of the new season, which resumes on 12th July.
"For now my mind is 100 per cent focused on Zenit. PSG are one of the clubs who no player could be indifferent to. You could not refuse that," he told Belgian daily Sudinfo.
The French side are currently in the process of a managerial change, with current manager Carlo Ancelotti widely expected to take over at Real Madrid in the coming days, with former France national team manager Laurent Blanc expected to take over at the Parc de Princes.
Witsel was also quick to comment on the possibility of Laurent Blanc making the move to PSG but stated that anything could happen.
"Does Laurent Blanc like me? I do not know anything. All I know of him is his sporting career. In football everything can happen quickly. But I cannot say any more about it, because I do not hold any of the cards," he added.
