Lampard says Edinson Cavani is a ‘great player’ and won’t rule out move as Chelsea target hands in transfer request – The Sun

FRANK LAMPARD has not ruled out a move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani as Chelsea look to boost their squad this month.

The Blues boss is looking to take some of the pressure off first-choice striker Tammy Abraham and cement his side's place in the top four.

It comes as Uruguayan striker Cavani hands in a transfer request to force a move away from PSG this month.

Lampard could be tempted by a deal for the 32-year-old, who is wanted by Atletico Madrid.

Speaking about Cavani's situation, Lampard said: "He is a great player, I played against him.

"I am not sure what the situation is there though.

"He has experience, sometimes it's good to bring in experience."

Cavani's contract expires at the end of the season but he wants to leave PSG immediately.

The Ligue 1 side's sporting director Leonardo revealed: "We've always said the same thing. We were hoping he would stay with the club, but today (Sunday) he asked to leave.

"We're studying the situation. We've had a proposal from Atletico Madrid, but that proposal was not commensurate with the player's value."

PSG reportedly want £26million for Cavani.
