Laurent Blanc has hinted that Paris Saint-Germain could move for Chelsea’s Eden Hazard in the summer transfer window.

The French giants were hit with a £50million fine earlier this month for breaching Uefa’s Financial Fair Play rules, but Blanc is still expecting to add to his squad in the coming months.

PSG have already been linked with a £50m move for Blues defender David Luiz, and Blanc has set his sights on Hazard too.

“Hazard is the kind of player who can be decisive,” Blanc said in Le Parisien.

“You can talk about all kinds of things; tactics, strength of the team, individual class, but a player who is capable of beating three or four players is something else. You never know what to expect from him.

“Unfortunately for us, next year we’ll be watched by Uefa. We will not be able to do what we want, but I think we will be able to improve the team anyway. We’ll be working within UEFA’s new constraints and want between two and four recruits.

“We already have a very good team in my opinion, so it does not take a lot of players. I think we’ll get to do what we want to improve the team.”
