Head coach Laurent Blanc claimed earlier this week that a deal to bring the Manchester United winger to Parc des Princes is "close".
And Real Madrid Castilla coach Zidane believes the Argentina international is an ideal signing to help PSG in their quest to win the Champions League.
"He's the kind of player that can take you to the next stage. That's what they need to go further in the Champions League," the former France international told BFM TV.
"Angel Di Maria can contribute his energy, the difference he makes when he accelerates, he has the quality to do something. I think that it will happen in the coming days."
Zidane has also backed compatriot Michel Platini's bid to become the new president of Fifa, following the former Juventus star's declaration that he will stand for election to replace Sepp Blatter.
"He'll do well. He's the ideal person to take over all that," said Zidane.
"I'll support him, he's done a good job. Of course I would vote for him."
