Maurizio Sarri is looking to bring a new centre-forward to Stamford Bridge to replace the misfiring Alvaro Morata
Chelsea have had an approach for Edinson Cavani knocked back by Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports.
Cavani, the Uruguay forward, became the Ligue 1 club’s all-time record goal scorer earlier this year, passing Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he netted his 157th goal back in January.
A prolific forward since moving to Europe in 2007, Cavani moved from Palermo to Napoli in 2010, before making the switch to France three years later.
There have been questions about the Uruguay international’s future this summer, and Chelsea have emerged as one of the clubs interested in securing the 31-year-old’s signature.
The Blues are on the lookout for a new forward to replace the misfiring Alvaro Morata, and Cavani is on Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri’s shortlist.
In fact, according to CulturePSG, the west Londoners have already made an approach for Cavani which has been rejected, with Paris making it clear that they will not sell the striker this summer.
Another target of Sarri’s is Gonzalo Higuain, and talkSPORT told you yesterday that the Italian wants to bring the Juventus forward to Stamford Bridge as soon as possible.
Morata, who is expected to leave to create space in Chelsea’s squad for their new striker, has been linked with joining Milan, of Italy’s Serie A.
