Rumours linking Paris Saint-Germain with a number of Europe’s biggest names are unrelenting.
With Zlatan Ibrahimovic seemingly on the move this summer when his contract at the Parc des Princes expires, the French outfit are on the lookout for a new superstar.
Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo is believed to be at the top of their wish list yet they also appear interested in what the Premier League has to offer.

The latter has been frequently linked with a transfer to the French capital, whilst rumours suggesting Sanchez is a target are entirely fresh.

Hazard is the most likely of the two to complete a switch to Paris after the Belgian admitted in February that turning down PSG would be hard.
He told Le Parisien, per Sky Sports: “It is difficult to say no to PSG, or to any of the teams capable of winning the Champions League.
“PSG are now in that category. And for me, winning the Champions League is my main aim.”
The 25-year-old’s comments came mere days before Chelsea’s clash with PSG in the very same competition, sparking anger amongst the club’s fans.
Real Madrid are also reportedly interested, especially so amidst Hazard’s recent return to form.
It took until a recent victory over Bournemouth for the Belgium international to score his first Premier League goal of the season - he’s scored four goals in his last four games ever since, including a brace against the Cherries.
Where Sanchez is concerned, the Chilean’s future at the Emirates Stadium is in doubt following a frustrating and trophyless season with Arsenal.
Seventeen goals in 40 appearances across all competitions represents a fine return for the 27-year-old, but his contributions have been largely unmatched by his teammates.
Juventus and Bayern Munich are also reported suitors, with contract negotiations between Sanchez and Arsenal stalling recently.
The Gunners will want to do everything in their power to ensure he stays yet a bumper contract might not be enough amidst the Chile international’s desire to win silverware.
PSG’s list of targets stretches further than just Hazard and Sanchez, though.
L’Equipe also understand that Ronaldo, Barcelona’s Neymar and Antoine Griezmann of Atletico Madrid have been identified as potential replacements for Ibrahimovic.
Of the three, however, the Ligue 1 champions believe Griezmann - who has an $80 million release clause - to be the most realistic target.
And they could do far worse. The French striker has been magnificent this season, scoring 31 goals in all competitions and helping steer his side to the Champions League final.
