Paris Saint-Germain midfielders Yohan Cabaye and Lucas Moura have said they would love to see Chelsea duo Eden Hazard and Oscar join them at the Parc des Princes.

Hazard and Oscar will head to Paris for Chelsea's Champions League quarter-final showdown with the French champions and their former team-mates were full of praise for the attacking duo.

Cabaye, 28, and Hazard, 23, were part of the Lille side that won the French Double in the 2010-11 season, before the former moved on to Newcastle United.

He was joined in the Premier League by the Belgium international a year later, and Cabaye has revealed he is keen to be reunited with his former teammate at the Parc des Princes.

"Hazard is 'the' player for Chelsea," the France international told PSG's video channel. "He'll be a player to watch.

"He can make the difference at any time, be dangerous with each acceleration. But everyone knows that. He knows me, I know him. There will be a way of stopping him. We mustn't focus only on him, but we have to be careful.

"Hazard is the player I'd like to see at PSG. He would do a lot of good to Paris and the league. He's one of the best players against whom I've played."

The Cabaye-Hazard reunion will not be the only one when the French and English league leaders meet on April 2.

PSG forward Lucas, 21, came through the youth ranks at Sao Paulo with Oscar, 22, before the now-Chelsea player joined Internacional in 2010.

"Oscar is a very good player," Lucas told footmercato.net. "A rare talent in today's football, given his qualities. I would be very happy if he came here to PSG. I think he would help us a lot. The more quality players there are, the better it is for the squad. Also, he's a very good friend of mine. I would be very happy if he came to PSG, the club too."
