Chelsea have been strongly linked with PSG striker Edinson Cavani, and reports claim that the Blues have put up an offer which was rejected by the French champions.

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has been linked with an exit from the club as the Blues are keen on signing a new striker this January transfer window.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has faulted Lampard’s decision to go for Cavani when he already has a quality striker in Giroud.

“If you can get him, he’s available and he can come at the right price, yes,” Cascarino told talkSPORT when asked about the rumours surrounding Cavani.

“Cavani has scored unbelievable goals for PSG, he always gets chances, every time I’ve watched him he gets chances to score.

“You don’t want to bring in people who are going to unsettle it slightly, but, if it works for the club, yes it’s a really good deal.

“What we’re seeing in this market is that loan deals are more realistic than buying players at the moment.”

Cascarino added: “It would be a gamble

. ‘I think they can just move it around slightly.

“I’ve never quite understood why [Olivier] Giroud has been cast aside so quickly. He did brilliantly for Arsenal and he came to Chelsea, and he wasn’t the number one choice but then became the number one choice – and he leads the line for France.

“I think it’s strange that he’s been pushed aside. ‘Tammy did really well and has become the number one, but he’s now had the dip every young player has, and Chelsea should have always prepared for that.”
