Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out signing any players next month, apart from Lucas Moura, who is due to arrive from Sao Paulo.
The French giants have been linked with a number of players, including Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi and Inter playmaker Wesley Sneijder.
But Ancelotti has been clear in his stance that Moura will be the only arrival at the Parc des Princes in the winter window.
He did though indicate that some players could leave PSG.
"We will not strengthen", the former AC Milan coach told Italian daily Corriere dello Sport.
"We expect to have the arrival of Lucas in January and in contract we will probably reduce the number [in our squad].
"De Rossi will not come to Paris. He has remained at Roma, it is his home.
"When in form he can have very big games, like he showed recently against AC Milan.
"Sneijder? For him it is the same thing.
"He will not see Paris, unless it is on holiday. When he is in form, he is a great player."
PSG are due to leave for a winter training camp in Doha later today, to undergo a mini-pre-season before the second half of the French campaign.
They are next in Ligue 1 action on 12th January, when Ajaccio are the visitors to the Parc des Princes.
