Total Transmission 8 is not only recommended, and (down here) standard Citroen gear oil across all models, it actually works extremely well, and produces slick and smooth changes. It is the recommended GL4, correct viscosity (75W80).
On our 2.5, it has resulted in the best gearbox action we've ever had.

There was a giveaway in the specs. PSA PEUGEOT CITROEN B71 2330
TOTAL TRANSMISSION GEAR 8 75W-80 is specially recommended for PSA manual gearboxes, with extended drain interval (250,000 km) and friction modifier additive adapted to PSA manual gearboxes.

though to be fair, I used Comma 75W-80 in the Mandarin car and the gear shifts on that were very slick, probably due to that box only having covered 98k miles.
