Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly ready to splash the cash again, with two of the Premier League's midfield stars on their radar.
Manager Laurent Blanc is said to be after an attacking midfielder, with Chelsea's Belgian star Eden Hazard his main priority.
According to France Football, the reigning French champions are considering offering over £34m in their attempts to lure Hazard away from Chelsea.
While PSG would also reportedly match his £5m-a-year salary, it seems highly improbable that Jose Mourinho would let the player go given the prominent role he has played for the Londoners this season.
Another Premier League player to have caught PSG's eye is Newcastle's Yohan Cabaye, who reportedly came close to leaving the club for Arsenal in the summer and would almost certainly be a cheaper acquisition.
