Ezequiel Lavezzi: Forward out of contract in the summer

Chelsea are competing with Inter Milan and Barcelona for the signature of PSG forward Ezequiel Lavezzi, according to the player’s agent.

Lavezzi is out of contract at the Ligue 1 champions in the summer and has been linked with a move away this month.

Former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed Inter Milan’s desire to sign the Argentina international, but agent Alessandro Moggi suggests there is plenty of other interest in the 30-year-old.

“Inter are certainly showing the greatest interest in the player, but there are also many other clubs in Europe keen on him, including Chelsea and Barcelona,” agent¬†Alessandro Moggi told Sport Mediaset.

“We are talking to Chelsea.”

It is understood Lavezzi would prefer a return to Italy, where he spent three years with Napoli, although he may not leave France until the summer, as PSG are still competing in four competitions.

“Maybe he will even leave next summer, without forgetting that even PSG have expressed their intention of renewing his contract,” Moggi added.

Lavezzi has 30 goals for the Parisians since moving to the Parc des Princes in a £25million deal.
