Chelsea will have to increase their bid of £32 million if they are to re-sign their former Brazilian defender David Luiz.
A report in Daily Mail suggest that the Blues may need as much as £40m to price away Luiz from PSG were it is reported that the Brazilian no longer feels at home.
Luiz is still a popular figure with Chelsea fans after playing through the pain barrier to help them win the Champions League in Munich in 2012, also winning the FA Cup and the Europa League while at Stamford Bridge.
The 29-year old was first purchased by Chelsea in January 2011 from Benfica for £21m. In his three-year stay in west London, Luiz made 143 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions, scoring 12 goals.
New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has made it clear a centre-back was top of his priority list with moves for Alessio Romagnoli at AC Milan and Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli falling through so far.
Sky in Italy reported last week that Chelsea’s £30m bid for Romagnoli was rejected, and that there was a “90 per cent” chance of Koulibaly not moving to Conte’s team.
