Emery: PSG are working to sign Wendel

Emery: PSG are working to sign Wendel

"It's something the club is working on", Emery confirmed in the pre-match press conference before PSG's Champions League meeting with Celtic on Wednesday.

They top Group B with 17 goals scored and none conceded, and another victory against Celtic - who are already eliminated - could see PSG clinch top spot before they go to Bayern Munich next month.

There is still no room for the unwanted Hatem Ben Arfa, though, who is unregistered in the Champions League.

Gordon said: "When you play global football, players come from all different clubs and we don't get enough time to work on things". We need to stay focused on taking all three points and continuing to progress. "We want the best performance possible".

Experienced Italy midfielder Thiago Motta is missing for PSG, but Belgian full-back Thomas Meunier could return.

"He is still very young, he has shown it for Celtic and France Under-21s and I am sure [French national team boss] Didier Deschamps and his staff will be looking at the next step for him, which I believe, will be into the full national team". He trained well on Monday.

The world's most expensive footballer has suffered a dip in form and there have been concerns about his love of a party, which he documents on his Instagram feed with more than 84 million followers. You only need to look at their results and how well they beat teams.

It will be a tall order for the Bhoys to leave Paris with anything but a defeat, however if Celtic are able to apply their skill, spirit, determination and maybe most importantly scrape some luck, they may well find themselves within touching distance of the Europa League come Thursday morning. Celtic coach Brendan Rodgers is one of those to have been dazzled by the capital club this campaign.

"There's competition in the squad - which is good for the team", said head coach Unai Emery. They have experience and quality in every single position, and that includes the bench as well. They showed that against Bayern. There is also competition for places in the team, which is good for us.
