Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is looking to replace midfielder Cesc Fabregas with Paris Saint-Germain star Javier Pastore, according to The Daily Mail.
The Argentine has been attracting interest from many clubs in Europe since joining the French side from Palermo in August 2011.
Since moving to the French capital, Pastore has been central to the team that has won four consecutive Ligue 1 titles and made it to successive European quarter-finals.
Blues boss Conte is looking for a new playmaker and he reportedly wants to send Fabregas out on loan in January as he seems surplus to requirements at the club.
