The Sweden international could be seeking a transfer away from the Parc des Princes as Edinson Cavani becomes more important to the side. The 33-year-old has become known for his arrogance, and isn’t likely to stay somewhere where he isn’t first choice. However, this also puts in to doubt a move to Stamford Bridge, where the former Barcelona man would likely have to play second fiddle to first choice striker Diego Costa.

Despite his advancing years, the forward’s ability has not diminished. He has 28 goals in 36 appearances for the Ligue 1 champions this season, and would be a brilliant replacement for the expected to depart Didier Drogba for the Blues. There is still a chance that Ibrahimovic won’t leave PSG though, as Cavani could move to Atletico Madrid and possibly leave space for the Swede in Paris.

Chelsea could be after a striker in the summer after a campaign in which Costa and Loic Remy have been injury prone while Drogba has shown the effects of being 37-years-old. Ibra would certainly be a high profile signing for the Blues to bolster their ranks with.
