Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are having a rather good week and it has gotten even better with the news from the Daily Mirror.
The publication seem to think that Paris Saint-Germain duo Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi both want to join the Blues, and given Jose Mourinho labelled them ‘real strikers,’ we think that the move could be a feature of the summer.
Cavani is hot property despite a poor showing at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League, and is desperate to leave the Ligue 1 leaders after failing to enjoy life in the French capital and not being prepared to play second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Lavezzi meanwhile has made no secret of the fact he would fancy having a go in the Premier League, and destroyed Chelsea in the first leg of their quarter-finals, showing exactly how good he is.
The Blues would face tough competition for both players, with Manchester United keen on Cavani and also willing to use Nani as a bargaining chip.
As we know, Jose Mourinho has targeted three new forwards this summer, and it seems two thirds of those new faces could be from PSG!
Chelsea fans. Who would you rather have at Stamford Bridge this summer? Cavani or Lavezzi? Let us know your thoughts below.
