Sounds like you’re looking for side air?  It happens mostly on lower end cases.  Glass side panels make it impossible.  It doesn’t happen on acrylic side panel cases either but acrylic can be cut.

Place a intake fans in the pci slot.

That looks like an exhaust fan. The way the blades are gives it away. I'd like to see an intake version though.

 

More ventilation options are always a good thing though. I've never seen one of these before.

What case do you have at the moment?

 

Maybe try with aftermarket cooler like this one first.

I still want to have a low profile card

If you can’t find an intake one, Take it apart and Turn the fan backwards, or outright replace it.  Those things are kinda famous for being cheaply made.  Notice that molex connector.  That design is not new.  One on either side of the card, one intake, one exhaust might even go well.  Thy an also be done with a fan, cardboard, and duct tape.  The most valuable bit imho is the connector grill.
