They’re suggesting the joint-Ligue 1 leaders are on the verge of a £15 million bid for the player.
Baines has been in fine form for the Toffees this year, enjoying one of his finest seasons to date.
The England international has caught the eye of a number of top clubs, and Paris St Germain look set to be the first to make their move.
They are likely to face competition for his signature however from a number of English clubs, with many now considering Baines to be the best left back in the league.
Baines has not only been solid defensively this year but has terrorised opposition defences with his accurate crossing and powerful shots from distance.
His form may yet tempt Sir Alex Ferguson into a move for the player, who sees Baines as the ideal replacement for Patrice Evra. Chelsea as well are said to be considering a bid with their current left back Ashley Cole’s contract set to expire at the end of the season.
PSG have the financial backing of the Qatar Investment Authority, who own the club, and are likely to be able to outbid the English clubs for Baines as well as offer him a significantly better weekly wage.
