Paris Saint-Germain could be about to launch an ambitious double swoop for Newcastle's French duo Yohan Cabaye and Mathieu Debuchy, according to L'Equipe.
The Parisians, now managed by former Manchester United defender Laurent Blanc following the departure of Carlo Ancelotti, have been significant spenders in the transfer market since the Qatar Investment Authority became majority shareholders in 2011 and could be set to use their formidable financial power to entice Toon chairman Mike Ashley into selling two of the club's prized assets.
Central midfielder Cabaye has been a hugely influential figure at St. James' Park since moving from Lille for an undisclosed fee in 2011, and Newcastle boss Alan Pardew recently stated it would take a huge offer to prise the 27-year-old away from the North East.
David Moyes' Manchester United and Ligue 1 title rivals Monaco are believed to be PSG's major competitors in the race for Cabaye's signature.
While a possible departure for Cabaye probably won't come as a particular surprise to Newcastle fans, a move for Debuchy would surely constitute a major shock considering he only arrived at the club from Lille for a fee of approximately £5.5 million in January.
Blanc is reportedly very eager to add a right-back to his impressive squad before the end of the current transfer window, and if their pursuit of Debuchy proves to be ultimately fruitless, PSG could instead turn their attentions to Arsenal's Bacary Sagna.
