Ezequiel Lavezzi

Chelsea are interested in signing the Paris Saint-Germain winger Ezequiel Lavezzi, according to Sky Sports Italy.

Lavezzi has been linked with a move away from PSG since the summer and it seems that the player is closing in on a January move to the Premier League.

The 30-year-old Argentine’s contract with PSG expires in the summer and Chelsea are keen to get him on a bargain.

According to the report, Lavezzi’s agent, Alejandro Mazzoni, was in London yesterday for talks with Chelsea and a move could be finalised soon.

The player has also been linked with a move back to Serie A where he enjoyed a very productive spell with Napoli.

Chelsea have struggled with creativity  and goals from wide areas this season after the multi-million-pound signing Pedro Rodriguez failed to make the desired impact. The Spaniard has struggled to fit in since his move from Barcelona and is already being linked with a move away.

Furthermore, Eden Hazard’s poor form has been a massive blow for the Blues who relied heavily on the Belgian in the final third. Hazard was the best player at Chelsea last season and bagged 14 goals along with 9 assists in the Premier League.

This season, the Belgian has managed just two assists and has failed to score in 19 Premier League appearances so far.

Lavezzi primarily operates as a wide forward and could add much needed pace and goals to the Chelsea attack. The Argentine has scored 32 goals for PSG over the last three seasons and had a similar goalscoring rate for Napoli as well.

It will be interesting to see if Lavezzi prefers a move to England over a Serie A return. But there is no doubt that the 30-year-old would be a useful signing for Chelsea in a short term deal, for a reasonable price.
