PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN will plot another assault on the Champions League with the most expensive strike force in world football.
Inter Milan wantaway Mauro Icardi is braced to join the French champions on a loan deal having fallen out with boss Antonio Conte.
It means PSG’s front three will consist of the Argentinean playing through the middle with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe on either side.
The French side have spent around a billion pounds to bolster their squad in an attempt to become a European powerhouse since being taken over by Qatari owners in 2011.
Neymar remains the most expensive signing of all-time having cost the club a staggering £198million.
They also spent an initial £130m on Mbappe with an extra £40m in add-ons.
Inter Milan had slapped a £76m price-tag on Icardi as they attempted to flog him on a permanent deal this summer.
It means PSG’s attacking three have a combined value of around £344m if Icardi signs before the deadline shuts later today.
Icardi will also have fierce competition from Edinson Cavani as to who will be the main front man this season.

The Uruguayan signed for PSG from Napoli for a reported £55m back in 2013.
And while PSG remain the most successful French club in history, they continue to fail in the Champions League.
They have failed to progress further than the quarter-finals in the previous seven years.
