Chelsea have reportedly identified PSG striker Edinson Cavani as their top target to replace Alvaro Morata at the club this summer.
It’s claimed by Italian news outlet Tuttosport, as cited by Calciomercato, that the Uruguayan international is who the Blues will target as they plan to bolster their strike force this summer.
Recent reports have indicated that Morata will be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer after a difficult first season at the club. Juventus are thought to be leading the race to land their former attacker.
Chelsea have struggled to establish a regularly reliable goal scorer up top this term and it appears as though this is something which they will aim to rectify in the summer transfer window.
Cavani has enjoyed another excellent season in PSG’s colours and it’s likely that the Ligue 1 champions will be desperate to keep hold of him.
The 31-year-old has scored 28 goals in 32 league appearances this season.
