Chelsea have made a loan offer worth over £12m for Edinson Cavani after yesterday draw

Chelsea have made an offer to take Edinson Cavani on loan from PSG for the rest of the season, according to The Times.

Blues boss Frank Lampard is on the hunt for a new striker and earlier this week revealed that he is an admirer of the 32-year-old Uruguayan.

Chelsea are said to have now followed up their interest with an official bid, which includes paying a loan fee as well as Cavani’s £360,000 a week wages.

The Ligue 1 champions are claimed to want at least £5m to allow the forward to depart this month, despite his contract expiring at the end of the season.

And PSG chiefs would still prefer to sell Cavani permanently this month, believing they could receive up to £23m for the former Napoli star.

Chelsea’s offer would cost the club in excess of £12m until the end of the season, at which point the veteran would become a free agent.
