Paris Saint-Germain head coach Christophe Galtier has been coy about the links between his club and Inter defender Milan Skriniar.

Speaking in a press conference, as reported by FCInterNews, the French coach stated that he has never suggested that his team need to sign a defender, and that right now he feels that the need is to replace Pablo Sarabia on the right flank.

Inter are braced for the possibility that PSG could move for Skriniar this month rather than waiting until the summer to sign the Slovakian on a free transfer.

The Nerazzurri know that the Parisians could value having the 27-year-old in their squad for the rest of the season, particularly in the Champions League, enough to offer a sizeable transfer fee before the January window slams shut.

However, from what Galtier has said, the coach only expects the Parisians to move for a right-winger to replace Sarabia after the Spaniard’s move to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Asked if the Parisians are working on a defensive signing, Galtier said that “I’ve never said anything about needing a new defender, our priority is to sign a player to replace the one who has left on the right side of our attack.”
