Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti claims he has been offered Fernando Torres, Dimitar Berbatov and Roman Pavlyuchenko during this month's transfer window.

The Parisian club's new Qatari owners have money to compete for the world's top players after spending over 85million euros last summer on a number of high-profile signings.

A whole host of names have been linked with a switch to the French capital this month as Ancelotti looks to bring in his own players.

PSG is thought to be in the market for a new striker and have been linked with a move for wantaway Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez, while a swoop for AC Milan's Alexandre Pato fell through.

Torres, who was signed by Ancelotti during his time in charge of Chelsea, has been continually linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge after failing to live up to expectations since his £50million arrival from Liverpool last January.

Manchester United striker Berbatov and Tottenham forward Pavlyuchenko have both been linked with moves away from Old Trafford and White Hart Lane respectively after struggling for regular first-team action this season.

And Ancelotti claims he has been inundated with offers for strikers since taking over at Parc des Princes

"There is a lot of choice for this January market," Ancelotti told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Since I signed for PSG I have received hundreds of calls from agents proposing their client: Falcao, Tevez, Torres, Berbatov, Pavlyuchenko, Cavani, Llorente.

"All want to come here: there is money, there is Paris, there is a good coach."
