PSG target Suarez and Higuain

Paris St Germain's billionaire owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi has confirmed the Ligue 1 club hope to bring Liverpool's Luis Suarez and Real Madrid's Gonzalo Higuain to the Parc des Princes this summer.

• Lugano: Suarez only innocent party
• Higuain may consider Juve move
• Pastore: I'd love PSG to sign Higuain

Suarez and Higuain top PSG's wish list for next season, following on from the recent transfers of Javier Pastore, Thiago Motta and Alex.

In an ominous sign for the club's rivals, Al-Khelaifi, chairman of Qatar Sports Investment, says the forthcoming summer's spending spree is just the beginning of increased investment over the next "five or six years" as PSG attempt to become a European powerhouse.

"We are already looking at the market for next season," Al-Khelaifi said. "We have clear targets in mind. It is true that we want Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain. Our real short-term targets are to win the Champions League and find a new Lionel Messi.

"We will spend what is normal for a top-class club. We prefer to invest a lot and immediately. In the next five or six years, we still spend this amount. Then the investments will slow."

PSG missed out on signing David Beckham, Carlos Tevez and AC Milan's Alexandre Pato in January, but currently lead Ligue 1 under new manager Carlo Ancelotti.
