Paris Saint-Germain forward Ezequiel Lavezzi seems to be on Chelsea's radar as the Blues reportedly made an enquiry about the Argentine's availability, during the transfer negotiations for David Luiz.

According to the Telegraph, Chelsea, who have agreed to sell Luiz to PSG for a transfer fee of £48m, are now interested in signing Lavezzi from the French giants in a separate deal.

However, the free-spending Ligue 1 side will be reluctant to sell the 29-year-old as he was in very good form last season. Lavezzi, who scored a stunning goal against Chelsea in the first leg of Champions league quarterfinal, still has two years remaining on his current contract with PSG, and there are also talks of the French champions wanting to extend the deal.

Nevertheless, PSG may look to use Lavezzi as leverage in their quest to sign Chelsea's star midfielder Eden Hazard, who has been identified as Laurent Blanc's top transfer target this summer.

But Mourinho, who earlier stated that Hazard's price would be somewhere in the range of £100m, will be reluctant to let him go as the young Belgian is now a key member of the Chelsea squad.

Lavezzi, who joined PSG from Napoli in the summer of 2012 for €26.5 million, will probably prove to be a very good signing as he is capable of playing in all three (left wing, right wing and centre forward) attacking positions.

Meanwhile Chelsea are reportedly looking to sign Porto's Eliaquim Mangala as a replacement for Luiz, who is set to become the most expensive defender by completing his big-money move to PSG.

According to the Daily Star, Mourinho is ready to spend £40m to secure Mangala's signature.

Though Premier League champions Manchester City are also understood to be interested in the 23-year-old, they will probably not be able to outbid Chelsea this time as their summer transfer spending has been restricted to £49m by the UEFA (as a punishment for breaking the Financial Fair Play rule).

Mangala had also previously stated that he would prefer to go to Chelsea rather than City.

"City or Chelsea? Chelsea because it is London.It is true that I love the Premier League because it is a spectacular championship. In January, there were discussions with City, but it fell through because the two clubs could not reach an agreement. Every player wants to play in the biggest clubs," Goal.com quoted Mangala.
