The Serbia international’s current deal expires next summer, and while the Pensioners have indicated that they are keen to extend his contract, an appropriate offer hasn’t yet been forthcoming.

As well as Bayern Munich, who the Daily Express have linked with the experienced defender, Paris Saint-Germain are also keeping tabs on the former Lokomotiv Moscow man.

Ivanovic has enjoyed great success at Chelsea, where he has won the Premier League, three FA Cup titles, the Champions League and the Europa League.

PSG are keen to solve their problem right-back position—where Gregory van der Wiel has been unconvincing this season—and are considering Ivanovic, according to Le 10 Sport.

While it is believed that Chelsea and the defender will ultimately arrive at some kind of agreement, it is a situation that Laurent Blanc and the Parisians will watch closely.
