Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the president of Paris Saint-Germain, hinted at the possibility of an active transfer window for the club this winter following the club's qualification for the Round of 16 of the Champions League on Wednesday.

Despite PSG's qualification, the group stage proved challenging and kept the French champions on the verge of elimination for the first 45 minutes and then some.

At the end of the day, PSG couldn't secure an away victory, although the draw was enough thanks to Milan's victory over Newcastle.

PSG Manager Luis Enrique sounded confident about the team's improvement from now through February and the knockout stages, although his team is going to face a notably hard draw featuring many of the biggest teams across the European landscape.

PSG, having finished second in Group F, awaits the draw for the round of 16, where they will be matched up with a first-place team qualifying from one of the other seven groups: Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Real Sociedad, Atlético Madrid, or FC Barcelona.

Al-Khelaifi, who was present at Signal Iduna Park for Wednesday's game, was asked about potential signings during the upcoming transfer window, which opens on January 1 and closes on January 31.

The president responded with a broad smile, saying, "I don't know, there are still a few weeks ahead of us, we'll see," leaving open the possibility of new acquisitions by PSG during the next month and a half.

Recent reports from French media suggest PSG is looking to strengthen its midfield, particularly after injuries to Fabian Ruiz and Warren Zaire-Emery making it obvious that reinforcements are needed even though the latter has already returned to play.
