Paris Saint Germain duo Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi are both keen to join Chelsea this summer.

According to the Daily Mirror, the two strikers are desperate to swap PSG for Stamford Bridge at the earliest opportunity at the end of the season.

But a double transfer would cost the west London side up to £80m, with Uruguayan international Cavani likely to cost at least £55m on his own.

Add to that a £115,000-a-week salary, and Chelsea will have to figure out a way to make it work under their Financial Fair Play commitments to seal both deals.

But the report makes it clear both PSG forwards believe Chelsea would be the best place to play their football next season.

The Blues knocked the defending French champions out of the Champions League earlier this month, following a 2-0 victory at Stamford Bridge that sent Chelsea through on away goals.

They face Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals.

Jose Mourinho is expected to move for a big-name striker at the end of the season, and Cavani has been strongly linked.

But Lavezzi has also emerged as a target in recent weeks, and this report will only add to the speculation ahead of what is likely to be a dramatic summer.
