French champions Paris Saint-Germain will look to bolster their squad once again when the January transfer window opens in a few days, according to the Daily Mail.
With Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani leading the attack, Laurent Blanc will now look to bolster his midfield and has made a short, but expensive list.
The French manager has targeted Spanish maestro Juan Mata, Belgian winger Eden Hazard and Newcastle's Yohan Cabaye.
From these three, a transfer for Mata seems most likely, with the Spaniard frozen to the bench since the start of the season.
New manager Jose Mourinho has insisted Mata doesn't fit into his style of football, because of the Spaniard's lack of defensive contribution and has preferred Brazilian Oscar instead.
There were reports in the summer that PSG have made a bid for Mata, which was rejected from hand by Chelsea, but with the World Cup just around the corner, the Parisians might manage to sign the highly-rated midfielder.
Cabaye is another name familiar with PSG's interest, but with Newcastle's re-birth this season and the current sixth position, just four points from the top four and with Cabaye pivotal in the heart of the midfield, this one looks unlikely to happen - at least during the January transfer window.
The newest face linked with PSG is Chelsea's winger Hazard. The Belgian has been phenomenal for Chelsea this term.
Mourinho looks like to be a fan of the Belgian, unlike Mata, and this story sounds very unrealistic.
Another player, which is linked with the French big spenders is the French midfielder Paul Pogba.
There were rumours that Juventus would agree to let Pogba join PSG, with Marco Veratti and one of Javier Pastore or Lucas Moura going to Torino.
If PSG really manage to sign Mata and one of Hazard, Cabaye and Pogba, then they might have a squad, able to challenge for European glory.
