Chelsea have been placed as bookies favorite to sign Paris Saint Germain striker Edison Cavani.
Cavani is being linked with a move away from PSG after his fall out with world record signing and Brazil superstar, Neymar Jr.
The pair argued over set pieces in the game against Lyon a fortnight ago and the odds of him being axed has been shortened by the bookies after that incident.
PSG need to sell players in order to not to draw the wrath of UEFA and his recent fall out with Neymar means he could be used as a scapegoat.
He’s been linked with Chelsea and Everton in recent weeks and Paddy Power via the Sun has subsequently placed the Blues as favorites to sign the striker at an odd of 11-2 while Everton follow closely behind at 10-1.
Manchester United and Manchester City are also believed to be in the running for the striker’s signature and both have been placed at 14-1 for his signature.
Although Morata has begun life at Chelsea in impressive fashion, the Blues could be in the market for a new striker next summer if Batshuayi doesn’t prove to be a good enough back up for the Spaniard this season.
Cavani would be a perfect competitor and partner due to his versatility.
However, an obstacle could be his price tag, PSG will definitely demand huge cash for their star striker and Chelsea may not want to splash big on a striker after breaking it’s club record for Morata in July.
