Rumours linking Paris Saint-Germain player Ezequiel Lavezzi to a Chelsea move emerged a week ago from the Italian press. Speaking to Italian outlet Mediaset, the players' agent, Alessandro Moggi, confirmed interest not only from Chelsea and Inter Milan, but also from Barcelona, although Lavezzi still might stay at PSG.

"Inter are the most interested team at the moment. There was interest from Barcelona and Chelsea, and we're talking with the Blues."

"I can't rule out him only leaving Paris at the end of the season though, as Paris Saint-Germain have expressed an interest in keeping him."

The 30-year-old forward is struggling to make an impact on a pretty loaded PSG squad, and is reportedly looking for a way out of Paris either in the current transfer window or next summer. The rumour still sounds out of place since Chelsea don't really need to focus on reinforcements on their winger situation this season, even if Eden Hazard isn't having the best of the seasons out there.

Regardless, Lavezzi could go anywhere, or nowhere, for that matter. Stay tuned.
