Argentina international Ezequiel Lavezzi has become one of the most highly sought-after names in recent times.

Currently with French heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain, the Argentine has six months remaining on his contract and will be available as a free agent over the summer.

As a result, interest has intensified across Europe for the 30-year-old.

And according to the Daily Mail, Chelsea are one of many reported suitors admist their search for proven quality to bolster their attacking options.

Diego Costa, Radamel Falcao, Loic Remy, Pedro and Eden Hazard have all flattered to decieve this season, with Willian the only attacking outlet providing substancial threat at Stamford Bridge.

Lavezzi could be a direct answer for the Blues, then, especially given the winger has found first-team action hard to come by at the Parc de Princes following last summer's arrival of Angel Di Maria.

Inter Milan are the rumoured frontrunners, but Alessandro Moggi, who knows Lavezzi's agent Alejandro Mazzoni having worked alongside him, has suggested otherwise.

He said: "Inter are the most interested team at the moment. There was interest from Barcelona and Chelsea, and we’re talking with the Blues."

Moggi insisted, however, that Lavezzi could yet remain with the Ligue 1 champions.

"I can’t rule out him only leaving Paris at the end of the season though, as Paris Saint-Germain have expressed an interest in keeping him."

The former Napoli star, renowned for his pace and dribbling ability, has started just three times for PSG this season and scored two goals.

Despite his age, Lavezzi would bring squad depth and attacking threat to whomever signs him - and that could be just what Chelsea need.
