French teams are limited to four players without EU citizenship. Hence, the squad list includes only the principal nationality of each player; several non-European players on the squad have dual citizenship with an EU country. Also, players from the ACP countries—countries in Africa, the Caribbean, and the Pacific that are signatories to the Cotonou Agreement—are not counted against non-EU quotas due to the Kolpak ruling.
PSG started their transfer window business much later in order to give incoming manager Laurent Blanc time to settle at his new club. The club made their first transfer of the season on 16 July when they signed Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani from Napoli; the transfer broke the Ligue 1 transfer record which was broken previously in the summer by Monaco when they signed Radamel Falcao. The transfer was the fifth-most expensive transfer ever at and the highest at that point for that summer's transfer window. The following day, Lille left-back Lucas Digne signed for €15 million.
After struggling with injuries for the past two years which prevented him from cementing a place in the team, Uruguayan centre-back Diego Lugano left on a free transfer to join English club West Bromwich Albion.
