Chelsea FC want to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani to replace Alvaro Morata in the Blues team, according to a report in England.

The Sun is reporting that the Uruguay international has emerged as a potential target for the west London club ahead of the summer transfer window.

The same article states that Chelsea FC are willing to sell Morata for a transfer fee in the region of £43m.

The Spain international has struggled in the Chelsea FC team this season following a return of 11 goals in 29 appearances in the Premier League.

According to the same story, Chelsea FC would be willing to accept a £13m loss on Morata as the Blues look to revamp their team.

Indeed, PSG could be forced to sell Cavani to satisfy Uefa’s Financial Fair Play regulations.

Chelsea FC allowed Spain international Diego Costa to return to Atletico Madrid at the start of the season following Morata’s arrival at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues brought in experienced France centre-forward Olivier Giroud in a £21m deal from Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Chelsea FC have won the Premier League title in two of the past three seasons but the Blues are facing a battle to secure a top-four spot.
