PSG are actively pursuing two more additions to their squad, with a specific focus on fortifying their offensive ranks. The club's sights are set on Randal Kolo Muani of Frankfurt, and Bradley Barcola of Lyon. Le Parisien confirmed this information on Thursday.

These acquisitions, if secured within the next two weeks, would not only bolster PSG's attacking force but also align with the new "Frenchified" project of PSG and add another Frenchman to the team's roster.

PSG's strategic approach to diversifying its squad has been masterminded by the coach Luis Enrique and sports advisor Luis Campos, which started to work on this at the end of last season ahead of the summer transfer window.

A potential starting attack formation for the upcoming game against Toulouse includes the returning Kylian Mbappe, Goncalo Ramos as the no. 9, and recent signing Ousmane Dembele on the right wing.

Bradley Barcola's impressive track record, scoring 7 goals and assisting 10 more goals last season at Lyon, has earmarked him as a solid candidate to improve the reserve unit of PSG.

Randal Kolo Muani, another reported transfer target, would introduce healthy competition in the attacking line bringing a new player to fight for minutes and the starting no. 9 role with Portugal international Goncalo Ramos.

Both Kolo Muani and Barcola have expressed their willingness to join PSG and have agreed on preliminary contract terms, but no deals have been agreed between the French champions and either Frankfurt nor Lyon for any of those two players.

PSG's financial strength is better than ever after the sale of Neymar for a hefty fee, but it's been reported that it would take an offer of around €80m to secure the services of Kolo Muani and convince Bundesliga side Frankfurt to sell their player, which is no small amount of money for a non-superstar player.
