Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti wants to sign Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, although the clubs have yet to reach an agreement.

After missing out on signing David Beckham from the Los Angeles Galaxy and striker Alexandre Pato from AC Milan, big-spending PSG is still in the market for a star player.

''Everyone knows we want a striker. Carlos Tevez is a great opportunity for us to have a great striker,'' Ancelotti said Thursday. ''As of today, nothing has been done. We need to speak to the player, with Manchester City. We hope to find a good solution.''

Ancelotti has not contacted Tevez or his advisers, saying only sporting director Leonardo is in a position to do so.

''I've not spoken to him on the telephone, neither him or his agent,'' Ancelotti said. ''Leonardo deals with that.''

The 27-year-old Tevez has not played for City since he refused to warm up during a Champions League game against Bayern Munich last September.

''He's a great player, in two weeks he can get back into good shape,'' Ancelotti said, adding that PSG is also looking at other players in case Tevez does not sign.

''If Tevez doesn't come, we have the possibility to get another striker,'' he said.

Since replacing Antoine Kombouare as coach late last month, Ancelotti has signed left back Maxwell from Barcelona.
