Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are optimistic of big business this summer and their hopes have been bolstered by today’s reports, which have gone down well with our punters order of fries.
French outlet Mercato365 states Chelsea have approached the representatives of Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani, to discuss a possible switch to the Premier League this summer.
The 29-year-old forward, who scored the winning goal against the Blues in the Champions League last week, has achieved vast success with PSG- but he has always been shunted out wide to accommodate Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
With PSG looking to shake-up their forward options this summer, as Ibrahimovic will also leave, Chelsea are looking to improve their own forward options with the addition of Uruguayan international Cavani.
Chelsea need wholesale changes this summer to improve an underperforming side, whilst the potential lack of Champions League football may also lead to high profile exits, so the Blues need to ensure they’re making progress with their top-targets.
Our landlord feels that Cavani would be an excellent recruit for the west London giants, though he feels the striker’s preference would be to join a side that has a spot in Europe’s elite competition.
Chelsea fans, is Cavani the sort of striker you should be looking at? Let us know in the comments below!
