Paris Saint-Germain reportedly make an offer to lure Chelsea's Brazilian attacker Willian away from Stamford Bridge on deadline day.

Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly made Chelsea attacker Willian their top target on the last day of the transfer window.

The Ligue 1 leaders are in the hunt for a replacement for frontman Neymar, who has been sidelined for up to 10 weeks with a foot injury that will see him miss the crucial Champions League tie with Manchester United.

According to the Daily Mail, PSG have identified Willian as the man to "help fill the gap" and will make an official approach for the player today.

The 30-year-old featured in the Blues' humiliating 4-0 defeat at Bournemouth last night and it is expected that the club will firmly reject any offer for the player, whom they value at £40m.

The Brazilian, who has been at Stamford Bridge since 2013, has 18 months remaining on his current deal and has already been the subject of a failed approach from Barcelona this month.

PSG, meanwhile, are also thought to have made a late loan move for Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil but have been rebuffed with their offer.
