Chelsea look to have been given a golden opportunity to seal the transfer of Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani this summer if reports in Spain are anything to go by.
The Uruguay international has shone for PSG but it seems his club are prepared to offload him this summer and have offered him to a number of unspecified European clubs, according to Don Balon.
The report states PSG want £61million for Cavani, but that Real Madrid and Barcelona do not seem prepared to go in for him at the moment.
It was recently claimed that Chelsea had made an enquiry over a potential transfer swoop for the prolific South American, according to Tuttosport, as translated by the Metro.
It would certainly make sense for the Blues to be in the market for a new centre-forward after the poor form of Alvaro Morata, who has looked a real flop in his time in the Premier League so far.
While Cavani looks a tad expensive for his age, many would surely agree he’d be a considerable upgrade up front.
The 31-year-old has been highly prolific for PSG, scoring 89 goals in all competitions in the last two seasons at the Parc des Princes.
Chelsea FC interested in deal to sign top 22-year-old forward – report
Cheslea FC are interested in a potential deal to sign AS Monaco forward Thomas Lemar, according to Kaveh Solhekol.
The Blues are in the market to improve their squad following a disappointing fifth-placed finish in the Premier League table.
Chelsea FC are facing the prospect of losing Belgium international Eden Hazard to La Liga giants Real Madrid this summer.
Lemar was close to a move to Arsenal last summer but the France star turned down a move to the Gunners after AS Monaco agreed a £92m fee.
The attacking midfielder was also linked with Liverpool FC but Lemar ultimately remained at AS Monaco for another season.
Lemar scored two goals and made eight assists in 33 appearances in the Ligue 1 season to help AS Monaco secure second spot in the table.
Atletico Madrid are also being linked with a move to sign the 22-year-old forward with uncertainty surrounding Antoine Griezmann’s future.
Sky Sports News reporter Solhekol believes Chelsea FC and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a move to sign Lemar.
“Chelsea are interested in him,” Solhekol told the Transfer Talk podcast. “Spurs are interested in him. Atletico are the favourites to get him.”
Chelsea FC were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley after Eden Hazard’s winner from the spot.
