Paris Saint-Germain are interested in replacing Zlatan Ibrahimovic with Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain, according to Le Parisien.

According to the French daily newspaper, the Paris based club is interested in signing the former Real Madrid striker, as they look to fill the void left by veteran Zlatan Ibrahimović, who played his last game for the club on Saturday.

During his last game with the Ligue 1 outfit, his side won their second consecutive domestic treble, after beating rival Marseille 4-2, where the 34-year-old scored a brace.

This will not be the first time when Les Rouge-et-Bleu are trying to sign the former River Plate striker, as they came close to attaining his services in 2012 before eventually signing Ibrahimovic.

The 28-year-old has a €60 million buyout clause in his contract, but his current club are interested in keeping him despite the heavy interest.

Higuain joined Napoli from Real Madrid in 2013, and has so far represented the club in 142 matches, where he's scored 101 goals and provided 27 assists.

He also became the highest scorer during a single season in Serie A, after managing to score 36 league goals in 2015/16 season for Partenopei Gli Azzurri.

Before coming to Italy, the Argentine striker spent six seasons at Santiago Bernabeu. He represented Los Blancos in 243 matches, where he scored 140 goals and provided 45 assists.

The striker has also remained part of the national team attacking trio with Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Manchester City's Sergio Aguero.

He has represented his national team 54 times, where he's netted 25 goals.
