Ezequiel Lavezzi wants Paris Saint-Germain to offer him a pay rise of up to £90,000-a-week, amid interest from Chelsea. 

According to, the Ligue 1 moneybags are keen for the Argentine forward to stay at the club this summer, and are ready to offer him a new deal.

Lavezzi's current deal with the club runs out in two years time, however he could still be on the move in the up coming transfer window. 

Various reports have suggested that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wants to take the player to Stamford Bridge, as the Blues target success in the 2014/15 campaign. 

The Argentine international is set to take part in this summer's World Cup and will be desperate to prove his worth on the grandest stage.

Chelsea, meanwhile, may have to act fast if they're to secure the player's services, with PSG looking to keep him in France for the long term. 

The Blues will be looking to secure their first signing of the summer in the near future, with the club expected to bring Atletico Madrid hitman Diego Costa to the club for around £35 million.
