Jose Fonte has backed Edinson Cavani to be a hit in the Premier League amid calls for the likes of Chelsea are still interested.

We have been all over the transfer headlines over the past few weeks and Frank Lampard is seeking to build a side that can close the gap on both Liverpool and Manchester City next season.

He has already signed up the brilliant Hakim Ziyech from Ajax, a deal for Timo Werner has been agreed, but not officially announced, while there are also talks of Ben Chilwell coming to the club.

But you can never have too many top-class players in the side, and after hearing that Cavani is leaving PSG when the transfer window opens up, there has been some reports that the Blues may make a cheeky contract offer.

And Lille defender Fonte, who spent five-and-a-half years in the Premier League with Southampton and West Ham, is excited by the possibility of seeing Cavani in England’s top-flight.

He told TalkSport: “I would love to see him in the Premier League, I think we all would. He’s such a great striker.

“He would do great in the Premier League with his approach to the game. He’s a complete striker. Everyone knows Edinson.

“So it would be lovely to see him in the Premier League and see what he can do.”

If we want another world class striker, why not offer him a one-year deal? he would bang in a few goals…
