Chelsea Coach Frank Lampard has dropped a huge Edinson Cavani transfer Hint amid recent links to the club, MySportDab reports.
Lampard has admitted that Edinson Cavani is “a great player” and revealed he admires the Uruguay international.
Lampard’s comments came just hours after PSG confirmed that Cavani has submitted a transfer request to leave the club.
Chelsea are likely to a move Cavani in this January transfer window, as Lampard revealed that they’re looking at signing quality experienced players.
PSG Sporting director Leonardo on Sunday evening revealed that Cavani asked to quit the club this month.
MySportDab understands his contract is due to expire at the end of the season but he is eager to leave the club now rather than later.
However, Lampard was today asked about Cavani’s transfer request hours after it was confirmed.
“I have no idea what the situation is, so we’ll see,” the Chelsea manager said.
“He’s a quality player. I have played against him and I loved his attitude and mentality, obviously his stunning goal scoring record speaks for itself surely.”
PSG have already had talks with Atletico Madrid over a potential transfer for the striker.
MySportDab can confirm that Atletico’s chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin and PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi have already met to discuss the transfer.
But, Atletico’s initial bid for Cavani was rejected immediately.
Edinson Cavani signed for PSG from Napoli in 2013 in a deal worth £58million.
The Uruguay international has made over 250 appearances for the club and is currently PSG’s all-time top goalscorer with 198 goals.
