PSG in search of players to beef up squad and stem their crisis – Marca

They drew 1-1 with Stade de Reims on Sunday
Stade de Reims striker Folarin Balogun equalized deep into stoppage time as his team held Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain to a 1-1 draw on Sunday, keeping PSG just three points ahead of second-placed Lens.
Following another poor result, PSG are looking for players to strengthen their squad before the January transfer window draws to a close.
According to L’Equipe, the Ligue 1 giants have placed Rayan Cherki and Malcom on their radar along with Johan Bakayoko, whose contract with PSV Eindhoven runs until 2025.
The 19-year-old winger has scored two goals and recorded one assist in nine Eredivisie matches this season, as he is not considered a starter at the Dutch side.
Meanwhile, PSG have dropped eight points in their last four games and their figures are worrying.
“We lacked rhythm and intensity,” coach Christophe Galtier said after their draw with Reims.
“With the number of experienced players we have, it’s hard to understand the goal with which Stade de Reims equalized.”
Inter centre-back Milan Skriniar is set to join Paris Saint-Germain. It only remains to be seen whether his departure will take place at the end of the season, when his contract expires, or this month.
The Slovakian defender decided against extending his contract with Inter and committed himself to the Paris-based club, whose defence has been shaky as Marquinhos is out of form, Presnel Kimpembe is struggling with fitness and Sergio Ramos is 36 years old.
According to RMC Sport’s Fabrice Hawkin, PSG are not willing to spend more than 15 million euros including bonuses to bring in Skriniar by Tuesday.
Despite all their three stars featuring upfront on Sunday, PSG couldn’t manage to grab all three points against Reims.
Neymar did score, but the result has once again cast doubt on the attacking trident. PSG top the Ligue 1 table with 48 points, followed by Lens, who have picked up 45 points.
