Paris Saint-Germain have continued their summer spending spree, confirming the signings of Mohamed Sissoko from Juventus and Salvatore Sirigu from Palermo.
Sissoko, 26, said: "I chose this club because it's a club with a very ambitious project and the people here have told me some very important things."
Highly-rated Argentinian Javier Pastore is also tipped to join his former teammate, 24-year-old Sirigu, at the Parc des Princes if PSG beat Chelsea to his signature.
"The team is going in a direction that suits me," said goalkeeper Sirigu.
PSG's total expenditure so far this summer is thought to be around €50m (£44m).
