Chelsea to move for unsettled Ligue 1 hot-shot

Chelsea could move for unsettled Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani, according to reports from talkSPORT.

The Uruguayan ace only joined the Parisians last year in a £50m deal, yet his short spell at the Parc des Princes has been turbulent.

Cavani was linked with a move over the summer after spending much of last season playing from a wide attacking position due to the presence of club talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

He opted to stay for the current campaign in a bid to dislodge the Swede, yet his quest appears to be off course.

And now the South American is being criticised by sections of PSG’s supporters, which has led to talk of a cut-price move.

A poll regarding whether or not Cavani is worth his price tag was put to fans of the club, with 71% responding with the answer no.

The Ligue 1 champions may look to offload their man in January, with reports suggesting that a figure significantly lower than the money paid to Napoli will be demanded.

Manchester United have been linked with the hot-shot, but their move to get Radamel Falcao on loan from Monaco – which could be made a permanent deal – looks to have ended their interest.

Chelsea already have Diego Costa and Loic Remy, but with Didier Drogba unlikely to play on after this season their forward line may be weakened for next term.
