Having already signed David Luiz for €50m, and with plans to sign a number of other expensive players like Angel Di Maria and Paul Pogba, the Parisian club have recognised that they'll have to sell to at least pay lip service to UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations.
According to Le 10 Sport, clubs are interested in Marco Verratti and Edinson Cavani among others, but Laurent Blanc does not want to lose an established member of his starting eleven - and that's where Lavezzi becomes expendable.
The sale of Lavezzi will make a small impression as the Argentina international is valued at £18m but it's still dwarfed by the scale of their spending.
Chelsea and Arsenal have been linked with the former-Napoli man this season, who joined PSG in a €30m deal two summers ago.
And he could be the odd man out at the Parc des Princes, with PSG keen to retain both Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. While a talented player, Lavezzi has been inconsistent in France and he lacks the goalscoring pedigree of his more illustrious strike partners.
Question over goalscoring ability?
Last season he managed nine goals but no assists from 32 Ligue 1 appearances as PSG won the league at a canter.
As well as Chelsea and Arsenal, the report claims AC Milan would also likely be interested in the Argentinian, who is preparing for the World Cup final against Germany this evening.
