Chelsea are preparing a bid for PSG playmaker Javier Pastore when the transfer window reopens in January, according to reports in France Football.
The Argentina international, 27, has a contract at the Parc des Princes until the summer of 2019.
However, the Blues are set to face a battle for the player’s signature from clubs in the Chinese Super League.
Pastore is “only thinking about PSG” at present, the source stressed, but admitted the 27-year-old’s future at Parc des Princes is far from certain with the French champions set to consider the his future over the next few weeks.
Chelsea coach Antonio Conte is known to be a fan of Pastore since his time with Palermo in Serie A and the Italian tactician has already registered an interest in signing the player, should he ultimately leave Paris.
