The Swede has a year left to run on his contract with the Ligue 1 giants, and PSG could look to cash in on him before he becomes available as a free agent at the end of the 2015/16 season.
According to Metro, Jose Mourinho is keen to bring Ibrahimovic to Stamford Bridge after the pair worked together at Inter Milan.
Mourinho is believed to have made signing a world-class striker a priority in the summer, and Ibrahimovic certainly fits the bill.
The former Barcelona man has scored 28 goals in 29 games in all competitions this season and it’s of no surprise that he is regarded as one of the world’s top strikers.
With Didier Drogba seemingly heading out the exit door at Chelsea, Ibrahimovic could help form one of the world’s best strike partnerships with the talented Diego Costa.
It would require Mourinho to alter his playing system, but his good relationship with the 33-year-old could see them reunited yet again.
