Edinson Cavani ready to snub Arsenal to make £36.2m Chelsea move

Posted by

Paris Saint Germain striker Edinson Cavani is reportedly keen on a move to Premier League strugglers Chelsea, according to the Daily Star.

Despite apparent interest from the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United, the Uruguayan international would supposedly prefer a move to Stamford Bridge instead (via Star).

Reports in Spain claim that though his situation in the French capital is ‘calm’, he has decided that now is the right time to leave the club.

He had endured a huge fallout with manager Laurent Blanc at the start of the year, but remained under contract until 2018 (via Star).

However, with Diego Costa struggling for full fitness, and Radamel Falcao still out of form, The Blues are believed to be in the market for a new frontman to help get their faltering season back on track.

Spanish publication Fichajes claim Cavani will be available for a fee of £36.2m, but any potential move may depend on whether Mourinho is still in charge of the club or not.
