If you haven’t heard already, and it would be hard not to with all the reports flying around – Chelsea are ready to bring Paris St-Germain’s Uruguayan international striker Edinson Cavani to Stamford Bridge this month.
 
The Express (as well as many others) report that the Blues will bid in and around of £50 million for Edinson Cavani, who has been a potent part of the PSG attack alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
 
No doubt Chelsea need a goalscorer who can do it at the highest level and no one can question the pedigree and workrate of Cavani, however the concern among fans may lay with the fee and the player’s age – Cavani turns 32 in a few weeks times.
 
PSG are unlikely to want to let one of their most reliable goal scorers leave so suddenly, especially with their ultimate aim of lifting the Champions League title looking possible this season. So whether or not the French champions will view £50m as a good business for a soon to be 32-year old is yet to be seen.
 
It’s been speculated that Cavani would leave PSG ever since the arrival of Neymar and at one point last season it looked a foregone conclusion, but that has since cooled. However, it’s widely viewed that the Uruguayan will depart – but this month may not make a lot of sense for Thomas Tuchel’s side.
 
Manager Maurizio Sarri has already stated the need for a goal scorer, despite two timely goals from Alvaro Morata in the FA Cup win at the weekend.
