Chelsea launch £42m bid for 29-year-old Ligue 1 forward



According to a report by Le10 sport, Chelsea have launched a £42m bid for 29-year-old Paris Saint-Germain striker Edison Cavani.

It has been no secret that for the past few years Cavani has been yearning for a move to the Premier League.

Chelsea have been linked with Cavani before, it’s likely this is yet another product of the rumour mill that will eventually fade into passing.

Chelsea were known to be interested in Real Madrid striker Morata and in light of the failed attempts to sign him, it seems Chelsea are also once again contemplating a move for Romelu Lukaku.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the Blues will be lodging a bid worth £50m (which falls short of Everton’s £65m valuation) but will have Everton considering whether or not to give in.
