Chelsea have reportedly made contact with Edinson Cavani as they look to land him on a free transfer this summer.
We were involved in a lot of transfer speculation and rumours during the January transfer window as there was a number of players linked with a possible move to Stamford Bridge, but despite all the rumours, Frank Lampard failed to secure any transfer deals.
Cavani was one man that was constantly linked with a transfer move to London, especially after he handed in a transfer request as he sought to make the move away from PSG after 198 goals for the French giants.
But despite all the speculation and rumours, we could simply not get a deal done for the big striker and Lampard will have to get through the rest of the season with the squad that they currently have, but it seems that we are still keen to try and nail down the services of Cavani, as reports on L’EQUIPE have claimed that we have made contact with the players agents about a free summer move to Stamford Bridge.
Tammy Abrahma recently claimed he would have welcomed a move for Cavani in the January window: ‘The players we were talking about bringing in were like Cavani and other top class strikers who have been around the game for many years,’ Abraham said in the Metro
‘It would have been nice if he had come. He would have been someone I can learn off and steal his ideas to add to my own.
‘It didn’t happen though and for me it gives me that extra push and desire to claim my position and be as best as I can.’
Look, Cavani is a brilliant striker, but is he still agile enough to cope with the Premier League? Would he really make a difference to the side next season?
