Chelsea could look to replace Colombian international Radamel Falcao with Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani in the January transfer window. 

This has been reported by The Sun, who claim that the Uruguayan international is frustrated with being played out of position in Paris. 

With Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the line, Cavani has starred on the wing on numerous occasions under the guidance of Laurent Blanc.

Falcao, meanwhile, has endured a torrid time in west London, scoring just one goal for the Premier League champions so far. 

Since arriving on English soil in the summer of 2014, the former Atletico Madrid forward has failed to produce the goods for both Manchester United and Chelsea, so he could move on in the New Year. 

It appears, then, that Cavani, who earns as much as £265,000-a-week at the Parc des Princes, could yet complete a move to Stamford Bridge. 

Risky business 

But, Chelsea fans shouldn't get too excited just yet. In truth, the report from The Sun doesn't exactly provide a great insight into the club's reported interest in the talented forward. 

And Cavani, at 28-years-old, would surely prove a risk for Jose Mourinho, who must get it right in the next transfer window. With his side struggling in 16th place in England's elite division, the Portuguese tactician can't afford to make too many mistakes between now and the end of the season. 

The high-profile purchase of Cavani would be a statement signing, but it wouldn't necessarily pay off. Falcao may well be finished at the highest level, but Chelsea should think outside the box as they look for his successor.
