Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has played down reports suggesting he is on the verge of moving to Paris Saint-Germain.

However, Manchester City's seemingly unsettled Ivory Coast international, Yaya Toure, has indicated that he would be interested in a transfer to the side from the French capital.

PSG are on the verge of signing Hazard's Chelsea team-mate David Luiz and are now also being linked with a move for the Belgian midfielder, with Ezequiel Lavezzi thought to be a candidate to head in the other direction.

I focus on the World Cup which is much more important than what is said in the papers.

The French side's manager, Laurent Blanc, has said that the 23-year-old Hazard is his number one target for the summer but the midfielder insists that he is only thinking about starring at the World Cup.

"If you got to know me you'd know I'm not someone who is disturbed by it," he said. "Every year they say I'm everywhere. It's part of the job. I focus on the World Cup which is much more important than what is said in the papers."

However, Toure has revealed he could be tempted by the possibility of a big-money move to PSG this summer. The 31-year-old recently criticised Manchester City for a perceived lack of respect towards him.

"Considering the objectives in Paris, how could you not be attracted by such a club?" he told France Football.

"PSG has become one (of the) strongholds in Europe. It would be an honour to be part of such a club one day. If I could help..."

Manchester City are currently priced 1/1 in the 2014/15 Premier League outright winner market, while Chelsea are available at 1/1, Liverpool at 1/1 and Arsenal at 1/1.
