Frank Lampard admits PSG’s Edinson Cavani is a top player and would a wonderful addition to his Chelsea side.
Cavani, 32, is running out of a contract and has requested PSG to be let go. Rumours continue to arise about a potential January switch to Atletico Madrid but Chelsea are favourably in a position to steal him away as well.
“He’s a great player; I played against him and always loved his mentality and attitude, and his scoring record speaks for itself,” said Lampard. “I’m not absolutely aware of what the situation is, so we’ll see.
“The idea of bringing in experience is something I’m certainly not absolutely looking away from, because sometimes the young players need a little bit of help, and if that’s the case then that may help us.”
The question remains on whether Chelsea will be able to snap him up this January. It all could depend on Olivier Giroud leaving for Inter Milan as his move starts to stall.
