Chelsea, Manchester United and Atletico Madrid are in hot pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani, and reports claim that it’s the Spanish side who are currently leading the race for the 32-year-old striker.

Meanwhile, Get French Football News have claimed that Atletico Madrid are in active negotiations with PSG about signing 32-year-old striker Edinson Cavani this month.

Olivier Giroud is keen on leaving the club in January, and Michy Batshuayi hasn’t shown that he’s capable of coming up with the goods when needed. This means that Chelsea need to sign an experienced striker to partner young striker Tammy Abraham who needs help.

Abraham has done well this season, but has also been missing in some games as the 22-year-old continues to develop into a quality striker.

Sky Sports have confirmed that Inter Milan made enquiries regarding Giroud just before Christmas, and the France international will make an exit this transfer window in order to boost his chances of making it to Euro 2020.
