Paris Saint-Germain have just won the Ligue 1 title but manager Laurent Blanc is planning to overhaul his forward line.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is likely to leave the Parc des Princes when his contract expires this summer, while PSG may agree to sell Edinson Cavani in order to free up room for the England international.

However, most of the clubs who stand a realistic chance of signing Cavani, who is currently on £215,000-a-week, are all based in the Premier League.

Big decision for Liverpool
Would Liverpool sell Sturridge who, when fit, is one of the best forwards in the Premier League if it could result in them inadvertently strengthening one of their domestic rivals?
No doubt the Liverpool hierarchy would be tempted to accept PSG’s generous offer, once the bid is officially submitted, for Sturridge.
The 26-year-old has suffered with various injury problems over the past two seasons, limiting him to a combined 32 appearances in all competitions since the end of the 2013-14 campaign.
If Liverpool believe his injury problems could resurface at some point in the near future, they might be wise to accept the money and run - provided they have a suitable replacement lined up.
Benteke replacement also required?
The Reds may also need to find a replacement for Christian Benteke this summer.
The Belgium international only arrived at Anfield last summer but has struggled for form and confidence.
And he revealed in a surprise interview earlier this week that he "finds it hard to understand" why manager Jurgen Klopp "ignores" him.
"Some team-mates said that I was lucky with the arrival of Klopp because I certainly would play," Benteke told Belgium's Sport/Voetbalmagazine, per BBC Sport.
"When your coach says he wanted to take you to Dortmund and a little later you sit at the same club and he ignores you it is hard to understand."
Sturridge is hungry to play
Sturridge has also hit out via the media in recent weeks - over claims that he simply isn’t determined enough to play for Liverpool.
“To say a player doesn’t want to play? That is the biggest disrespect ever you could say to any footballer. I think it is astonishing, it’s disappointing from whoever was saying it,” he was quoted as saying by the Mirror last month.
“But it’s football. And, of course, people are entitled to their opinions. But all I can say is that I don’t think anyone will understand how much it means to me to play football.
“It hurts not being able to play. You have to be strong in those situations and it is important to understand that I am not at home chilling, I’m not going out with friends living life to the fullest when I am not playing.
“I am devastated when I am not playing. I am in my house. I’m not happy. I’m not stress free. I’m sitting in the stands devastated at watching my team-mates play. It hurts hearing what people have said second and third hand.”
