Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain could be on course to agree on a huge transfer this January as Eden Hazard is linked with a £74.7million move to France.
Hazard has been linked with the Ligue 1 big-spenders in the past, having first made a name for himself in the French top flight with Lille.
The French league leaders are preparing a huge offer to pry the Belgium international away from Stamford Bridge as they will look to test his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.
Hazard was left out of the 2-0 victory over Aston Villa but was brought back into the side to play all 90 minutes of Chelsea’s defeat to West Ham on Saturday.
The Sun claim that PSG will offer Hazard a deal that exceeds his current £200,000-a-week contract with The Blues and hope that the prospect of a return to France will appeal to him.
Hazard spent seven years with Lille before making the move to West London in 2011.
Last season saw him pick up the PFA Player of the Year award following a league and cup double, but he has struggled to recapture that form this time around.
The 24-year-old has since become established as one of the best players in the world at Chelsea but is currently out of favour with Jose Mourinho after a tough start to the season.
Reports state that this could see PSG make a big bid for his services as early as January.
According to the Daily star, Real Madrid and Barcelona are also monitoring the situation with Hazard, as both would like to take him to La Liga if they can prise him away from Chelsea.
Paris Saint-Germain is weighing up a swoop for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku. PSG will need a replacement for star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and see the former Chelsea forward as an ideal option.
