Chelsea target Cavani scores solo goal for Uruguay

Next Story

Chelsea transfer target Edinson Cavani scored the only goal of the game as Uruguay beat Venezuela in World Cup qualifying last night - and it was a beauty.

The Napoli forward has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, and it's not hard to see why.

The 26-year-old is one of the most prolific forwards in world football, and put Venezuela to the sword with a fine solo effort in the first half.

Collecting the ball down the right channel, Cavani cut inside leaving a sliding defender in his wake before calmly sweeping the ball home.

And Chelsea fans could be seeing this kind of forward play on a regular basis next season if recent reports are anything to go by.

The Europa League winners have reportedly submitted at least one bid for the Uruguayan as they look for a more dynamic striker to play in front of Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Oscar.

Check out Cavani's goal in the video below - do you think we will be seeing him at Stamford Bridge next term?
