Chelsea transfer news: Lavezzi blow for Mourinho, Blanc rules out Hazard move

A round up of transfer stories this morning about Chelsea.

French sources suggest Chelsea may struggle to get their hands on Paris Saint-Germain forward Ezequiel Lavezzi.

The attacker has reportedly been given the green light to go after a move to Arsenal by PSG boss Laurent Blanc.

However, Chelsea could make a bid of their own in an attempt to hijack the deal.

Blanc is also in the news for reportedly giving up on any chance of signing Eden Hazard this summer.

Hazard has been linked with PSG and a £50 million fee has been mentioned over a possible deal.

PSG have only just done a £40 million deal for central defender David Luiz.

Chelsea are sticking by their £32 million asking price for Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku.

Any side that wants to sign the Belgian after the World Cup will have to come up with the huge fee.

Tottenham are one of the sides to have been consistently linked with a move for the striker.
