Chelsea want to sign a striker before the January transfer window ends and they have been linked with Paris-Saint-German striker Edinson Cavani.

Reports claims the Blues have been linked with Cavani and reportedly made a loan bid.

However, Chelsea may turn their attention to £20m-rated CSKA Moscow striker Fyodor Chalov if they fail to sign Edinson Cavani this month.

Chelsea made a six-month loan proposal to PSG, who have Cavani contracted at Parc des Princes until the end of June. The west London club are willing to cover the Uruguayan’s £360,000-a-week wages and pay PSG a £5m loan fee.

The Ligue 1 champions would rather profit more handsomely from Cavani’s exit while they can, however, and offload the 32-year-old for around £15m.

Frank Lampard is eager to bring a new striker into his first team in order to give Tammy Abraham more competition for a starting berth.

Express Sport understands that Stamford Bridge chiefs are still interested in CSKA frontman Chalov, who is available for around £20m. The 21-year-old has scored five goals and provided four assists in 19 appearances in the Russian top-flight this season.
