Check out all the latest Chelsea news and transfer gossip from today.
Chelsea's hopes of luring Ezequiel Lavezzi to Stamford Bridge have been dealt a blow after Paris Saint-Germain allegedly offered the Argentine forward to Atletico Madrid. (talkSPORT)
The Ligue 1 champions need to free up some room in their first-team squad at Parc des Princes, as they close in on a big-money deal to sign Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria.
PSG officials have already held talks with the Spanish club over a prospective £18m transfer, which could rule out any possibility of Jose Mourinho getting his man.
Lavezzi has also been linked with a move to Liverpool in recent days as Brendan Rodgers continues his search for striker reinforcements after Loic Remy's proposed switch to Anfield broke down after allegedly failing a medical.
However, like the Blues, the Reds are now unlikely to land the former Napoli star as he is being teed up for a transfer to La Liga, where he'll link up with compatriot Diego Simeone at the Vicente Calderon.
Chelsea transfer gossip:
Chelsea are trying to sell Fernando Torres for a cut-price £20 million this summer - £30 million less than they paid for him three years ago - but aren't able to find a buyer. (Daily Telegraph)
The Spaniard has never truly lived up to his reputation in his time at Stamford Bridge following his £50 million switch, and with Diego Costa arriving form Atletico Madrid this summer, first team action is likely to be hard to come by for the striker.
Didier Drogba has also returned to his former club, which could limit Torres' time on the pitch even further this season.
Speculation over the future of Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani has intensified after the Uruguay international was left out of the French champions’ latest kit launch. (ESPN)
The 27-year-old, who has been strongly linked with a move to Chelsea this summer, was curiously omitted from PSG's third kit promo ad.
Jose Mourinho has revealed he approached Luka Modric about a possible move to Chelsea but the Croatia international rejected him to stay at Real Madrid. (Goal.com)
The 28-year-old midfielder joined the Spanish club from Tottenham in 2012 and worked under Mourinho for a season before the Portuguese left to return to Stamford Bridge.
