Chelsea linked with £50m move for PSG striker, Cavani

Chelsea have been linked with making a move for PSG striker Edinson Cavani as they look to bolster their attacking options.

Despite a fine start to the season, the goals have somewhat dried up for Chelsea, who have only managed five goals in their last five outings in all competitions.

The main goal-getter for the Blues has been Eden Hazard, who has scored 10 of their 38 Premier League goals, while main strikers Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have scored just six goals between them.

They have been linked with a move for a number of strikers in recent weeks, with Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson and AC Milan’s Gonzalo Higuain the names to have been floated around in recent weeks.

However, the Sunday Express reckon that Chelsea are interested in PSG forward Edinson Cavani, and could make a £50 million move for the Uruguay international.

The 31-year-old striker has scored 10 goals in 11 Ligue 1 games for the French league champions, and has also been linked with a move to China.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata struck his first goals since late November yesterday, bagging a brace in the Blues 2-0 FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest.
