Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard is a £34m target for Ligue 1 billionaires Paris Saint-Germain as they look for flair players capable of providing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani with a consistent supply line, according to The Express.

Hazard has shown glimpses of his best form for Chelsea this season, with eight goals in 22 appearances across all competitions.

Those flashes of brilliance are thought to have been enough for PSG to make the Belgian magician their top target in the January transfer window.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho has made Hazard a regular starter this season despite widespread rotation in other positions, making the prospect of a deal thought to be worth an absolute minimum of £34m extremely unlikely.

The 22-year-old's wages at Stamford Bridge come close to £5m per year, but PSG don't view that hefty sum as an obstacle to the deal and are prepared to match that salary if Chelsea took everyone by surprise and made the player available.

PSG coach Laurent Blanc is also thought to be keen on Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane and Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, as the French champions look to flex their considerable financial muscle over the next 12 months.

Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye has also been consistently linked with a switch to the Parc des Princes, a switch would see him reunite with former Lille team-mate Eden Hazard in the French capital if both players left the Premier League.
