Stamford Bridge side chase PSG forward.
Chelsea have surprisingly been linked with an interest in PSG forward Edinson Cavani with talkSPORT claiming that Jose Mourinho could look to bring in the Uruguayan in a cut-price raid.
The 27 year old Parc des Princes star is said to be unsettled in the French capital and Mourinho is keen to further strengthen his attack in view of Didier Drogba’s advancing years and this source believes that the former Napoli could be available ‘on the cheap’ having failed to win over PSG’s fan-base.
Mourinho has seen new signing Diego Costa adapt amazingly well to life in the Premier League with fellow summer signing Loic Remy yet to be offered much of a role in Chelsea’s first team set-up, though apparently this won’t stop the west London side targeting yet another striking option.
By all accounts Cavani is unhappy about being used primarily in a wide-attacking role, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic being Laurent Blanc’s starting option in a central striking spot, however when given the chance to shine up front the powerful South American was found wanting.
With Swedish international Ibrahimovic out injured Cavani was handed the chance to lead the PSG line against rivals AS Monaco on the weekend but did not impress, furthering speculation that the Ligue 1 side could be open to offers for a player they spent £50m on last summer.
