New Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly identified Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic as a potential target as he looks to overhaul his squad during the summer transfer window.

According to Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo, Mourinho is monitoring the situation of Ibrahimovic following his appointment as Chelsea boss, with the Swedish striker stating that he would consider following Carlo Ancelotti out of Paris.

Ancelotti is intent on leaving the Parc des Princes to replace Mourinho at Real Madrid and will meet with PSG officials on Wednesday having already informed them of his desire to move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

The apparent doubt surrounding the future of Ibrahimovic has seemingly attracted the interest of Chelsea, with Mourinho keen to acquire the services of a proven striker before August's transfer deadline.

Mourinho is reportedly ready to offload Fernando Torres despite his most successful season in a Chelsea shirt, with the Portuguese hopeful he can secure a reunion with Ibrahimovic, having worked together at Inter.

Ibrahimovic only joined PSG in the summer transfer window of last year, but has often been linked with a switch away from the club having scored 35 goals in the club's first title winning campaign since 1994.

Along with Ibrahimovic, 31, Chelsea have also been linked with moves for Napoli hitman Edinson Cavani and Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko, as well as Stevan Jovetic of Fiorentina.

Mourinho could also look to reinforce his Chelsea midfield, and is reported to be pursuing two former charges - Sami Khedira and Wesley Sneijder.
