Ezequiel Lavezzi is eyeing a move away from PSG this summer and is prepared to turn down a new contract in order to relocate.

The Argentine is out-of-contract this summer and is on the list of many European super-clubs who know they’ll be able to secure a quality player for little cost.

Lavezzi will have spent four years in the French capital by the time his contract expires, accumulating 29 goals and 21 assists in all competitions.

Those clubs interested are understood to be Manchester United, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Juventus. Lavezzi, preferably, would like to go back to Italy where he enjoyed the large part of his successful career with Napoli.

Chelsea are currently the club right on the heels of Lavezzi as they are desperate in seeking reinforcements out-wide after the deterioration of Eden Hazard and under-performing Pedro.

Although a summer move looks the more likely and a pre-contract can be signed this month, a late bid from Chelsea may be accepted by Paris St-Germain as they look to recoup some of the €30m they forked out back in 2012.
