Chelsea are considering a £50 million bid for Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani, according to a report in the Daily Express.

The 31-year-old Uruguay international would be the perfect fit for Maurizio Sarri’s high-octane style, and is one of the best strikers in the world when it comes to work rate.

Chelsea will also be attracted to his talent and experience, hence the high fee quoted despite the fact the player will turn 32 next month.

Alvaro Morata, who scored twice in an FA Cup victory against Nottingham Forest on Saturday, is likely to leave the club this month, and Cavani would be the perfect replacement, but his quality also means that PSG will be reluctant to let him go.
