Chelsea eye PSG attacker

Chelsea are planning a shock summer move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Ezequiel Lavezzi, according to reports from The Express.

The Argentine international starred in his side’s 3-1 Champions League win over the Blues on Wednesday, netting the opening goal in a 3-1 victory.

This appears to have prompted interest from the Londoners, who are known to be on the lookout for attacking talent.

Reports suggest that Chelsea have already contacted PSG to discuss the possibility of an end of season move, and that they are hopeful a deal can be arranged for the versatile attacker.

Lavezzi has been an infrequent starter at the Parc des Princes this term following the arrival of Edinson Cavani, with the talented Uruguayan adding further to the club’s swelling front-line.

The 28-year-old came close to joining Inter Milan on loan in January, and is believed to be available for the right price.

Jose Mourinho has been critical of his strikers on numerous occasions this season, and could look to add Lavezzi and prime target Diego Costa as replacements for Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba.
