Chelsea to renew €64m Edinson Cavani chase

Chelsea have not given up hope of signing Paris St-Germain forward Edinson Cavani in the January transfer window, according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport.

The same French newspaper claimed earlier this season that Cavani was open to leaving the Parc des Princes despite only joining this summer after failing to gel with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The €64m summer recruit was heavily linked with Chelsea before joining PSG, and Le 10 Sport claims Chelsea would consider an offer for Cavani in the January transfer window should he become available.

But the Uruguayan international has been excellent for the Ligue 1 leaders this term, scoring 11 goals in 16 appearances for the French club - only Ibrahimovic has more with 13 in 16 games.

So PSG are unlikely to be willing to consider offers for Cavani, and any Chelsea bid would surely be optimistic at best despite the report from France.

But the Stamford Bridge side are desperate for reinforcements up front, with their current front three failing to fire on all cylinders.

Samuel Eto'o, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba have just four Premier League goals between them this season, a woeful total considering the club's position in the league.

If you need further indication of why Chelsea need Cavani, and why PSG will almost certainly not be willing to sell, check out the video above...
