Kylian Mbappe's place in the team is the main focus of attention as Paris St Germain look to wrap up their Champions League last-16 spot against Anderlecht on Tuesday.

The teenage France forward, a summer loan signing from Monaco ahead of a reported 180million-euro (£166m) move next summer, has struggled in his last two Ligue 1 games.

However, he has scored only once in his last six appearances for club and country, leaving his starting place in doubt with reports Angel Di Maria could get the nod.

Coach Unai Emery would not make a definitive statement on the issue at his pre-match press conference, broadcast live on the club's website.

But he said: "Kylian is ready to play every match. Mentally and physically he is doing well.

"I have spoken to him, it's a new experience for him. When you play well, the newspapers and television say you are the best. When you have a poor match, you have to listen to criticism.

"We are talking about a player who started at the highest level last year, it is normal that it is a learning process for him. I have made a general analysis of the 10 games and he is on the right path.

"I have an idea in my head of the future, with PSG as champions and Mbappe as a champion."

Paris St Germain have signed Wolfsburg midfielder Julian Draxler on a four-and-a-half-year deal.

The fee for the 23-year-old has not been disclosed but it is reported to be in the region of 42 million euros (£35.58million).

Juventus and Arsenal were both linked with Draxler in the summer, with the Bianconeri having been close to signing him when he joined Wolfsburg from Schalke in a club-record deal in 2015.

But Draxler, who had a release clause in his long-term Wolfsburg contract, has instead accepted a deal to join reigning Ligue 1 champions PSG.

"Like Paris St Germain, I have big ambitions for the coming seasons and it will be a great pleasure to work under the direction of Unai Emery, who has developed an excellent reputation in Spain, and across Europe, for his quality as a coach. I can't wait to begin this next challenge of my career."
