Chelsea long been linked with Edinson Cavani and his name has once again come up as part of speculation regarding Chelsea’s summer transfer business.
But another other PSG striker and Serie A import, Ezequiel Lavezzi, has probably been the more impressive of the two over the last couple of months.
Lavezzi is an unerring finisher but also has a real creativity about his game. Chelsea have today been linked with a massive swoop for the pair of them.
The Mirror reports:
Paris Saint-Germain’s South American strike duo Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi put Chelsea on high alert last night after telling friends they BOTH want to move to Stamford Bridge in the summer.
Uruguayan hit-man Cavani is understood to have had enough of playing second fiddle to Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic, while Lavezzi is also keen to quit Paris. In the aftermath of the Blues’ 3-1 Champions League quarter-final defeat at the Parc des Princes, Mourinho said both Cavani and Lavezzi were the type of “real strikers” who would bring trophies to the Bridge.
The Paris Saint-Germain strikers would cost Jose Mourinho £80million
It may cost around cost around €100 million to bring the pair to Stamford Bridge but we know the Chelsea have that kind of cash and they’re really good at closing the deal once they set their sights on big players.
Eden Hazard had the pick of The Premier league when he was moving to England a couple of years ago – but Chelsea won out.
A quick smash and grab for the pair of the strikers could see Chelsea complete their transfer business for the summer in one fell swoop.
But with PSG reportedly keen on taking Hazard and Oscar this summer could we be about to see on of the biggest swap deals of all time?
Let’s see Lavezzi in action.
Chelsea fans – a dream double?
