Chelsea target close to joining Shanghai Shenhua

La Parisien reports that the 31-year-old will move to China in a 15million euro deal.

Lavezzi was left out of PSG’s squad for the clash with Marseille on Sunday.

The Argentine forward joined PSG from Napoli in 2012.

Chelsea have previously heldt talks with Lavezzi’s agents over a possible summer move to Stamford Bridge, but the forward now seems likely to move to China instead.

Lavezzi’s current contract at PSG is set to expire at the end of the season.
