Edinson Cavani

Chelsea have contacted Paris Saint Germain (PSG) striker Edinson Cavani over a loan move before the end of the present winter transfer window.

This is according to the report from Goal which stated that the Blues want to sign him on loan from his French club though Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid are favorites to sign him.

Chelsea are hoping to get more competition for central striker Tammy Abraham in that department as club manager Frank Lampard is not convinced by the present options of Michy Batshuayi and French World Cup winner Olivier Giroud.

Frenchman Giroud was thought to be closing on a transfer to Italian Serie A title challengers Inter Milan but that move appears to have stalled with the Italians now searching for alternatives.

Recent reports from Italy claimed that Inter Milan have opted to sign Fernando Llorente from Napoli after failing to lure Giroud from Chelsea.

For Edinson Cavani, PSG have already turned down a bid of €10m from Atletico Madrid for him.

Atletico Madrid have offered him a two-and-a-half-year deal until 2022 but the Spaniards still need to agree on a fee with PSG.

They are favorites ahead of Chelsea after manager Diego Simeone outlined his plans for him.
