Philippe Mexes has claimed that a number of "great names" are interested in joining Paris Saint-Germain, including his AC Milan team-mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Ligue 1 outfit's ambitious Qatari owners have spent heavily since arriving in the French capital and are expected to make more high-profile signings in the summer.

Mexes has little doubt that PSG are capable of attracting world-class talent to the Parc des Princes, admitting that they are currently the talk of Europe.

"There are plenty of players who would be interested in playing for PSG, even great names," the former Auxerre defender told RMC.

"Even Zlatan told me that if he was to leave Milan one day and was approached by PSG, he would think twice. Even, me, I wouldn't say no to it in the future."

Turning his attention to more pressing matters, Mexes confessed that he would like to avoid the big guns in Friday's draw for the Champions League quarter-finals, admitting that he would have no issue with the Rossoneri being paired with Marseille.

"We have some preferences for the draw," he revealed. "If it is possible to avoid Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, that would be nice.

"I wont lie to you: Marseille would be a good draw. I'm not saying it would be easy, but to go further on the competition, well, it would be the best.

"However, Marseille is a good team, which has defeated many fierce adversaries."

Meanwhile, Mexes has expressed his sorrow over the news that Eric Abid likely to sit out Euro 2012 because of his need for a liver transplant.

It has not yet been confirmed how long the Barcelona defender will be out of action for but RMC is reporting that the 32-year-old will play no part in his country's summer campaign in Poland and Ukraine.

Mexes acknowledges that losing Abidal for the Euros would be a blow for the national team's morale, but he points out that the most important thing is that his team-mate makes a full recovery.

"I'm really sad [that Abidal is unlikely to travel] but, on the other hand, there are more serious things in life than football," the former Roma man told the French radio station.

"If he doesn't play Euro 2012, it would be really bad for us. But we think about him first. 

"He is more than an asset: his experience; what he brings to the team; his mentality. We're losing a great player. I wasn't expecting it. It strikes our morale."

France have been drawn in the same group as England, Ukraine and Sweden for Euro 2012.
