Paris Saint Germain are lining up an audacious bid for Manchester City striker Sergio Agüero, according to talkSPORT.
The report claims that last season's Ligue 1 winners are preparing an offer to take Agüero away from the Etihad Stadium, as they look to find a potential replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edison Cavani - who both find their future in doubt.
The duo have been linked with a move away from PSG, with the Swede being touted to return to AC Milan, while Cavani has attracted the interest of Italian side Juventus.

According to France Football, the club's Qatari owners are prepared to dig deep into their pockets to sign Agüero as their marquee striker this summer.
The Argentinean had a relatively injury free season last year, living up to his reputation as one of the most clinical goal-scorers in world football by scoring 26 goals in 33 games.

Aguero continues fine-form at Copa America
The 5'8 striker has continued his form into the Copa America, where he is Argentina's top goal scorer with two goals in as many games.
Agüero grabbed all three points for his national side on Tuesday night, scoring a stunning diving header in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Uruguay.
Ibrahimovic's time at PSG coming to an end
PSG are being forced to scout other potential strikers, as Ibrahimovic has refused to confirm that he will be staying in Paris next season.
The Swedish striker has one-year left on his contract at Parc De Princes, but is said to be desperate to return to former club AC-Milan.
According to La Gazzeta, as reported by the Mirror, Ibrahimovic is flying out to Doha with his agent to meet club president Sheikh Nasser Al-Khelaifi - where he will officially request to depart the French quadruple winners.
The Rossoneri have under-performed in recent years, finishing 10th last season, but Ibrahimovic has indicated that missing out on Champions League football wouldn't be a problem.
"I have one year left on my contract with PSG and no other plans. But then things can change from one day to the next.
"I think that the older I get, and now I'm a father, I think differently about choosing a club. It's not just the football aspect that needs to be right, it's how your family settle and what kind of city you'll be living in.
“A lot of people think it’s all about the Champions League, but that’s not true. I want to be at a club where I enjoy myself, have a good time and play fun football."
