- The Chelsea manager wants the Uruguayan to replace Morata and Giroud who have not been sharp up-front
- Sarri believes Cavani can bolster the Blues' attack-line
Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri, has made public his desire to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward, Edinson Cavani.
The Italian tactician contends the Uruguayan will be a perfect replacement for the duo of Alvaro Morata and French star Olivier Giroud who have struggled in front of goal.
According to a UK Metro report, Sarri is unhappy with resources available for him to bolster his squad and has grown tired with his attack-line options of Morata and Giroud.
As such, the former Napoli manager is understood to be keen sign Cavani ahead of the expiry of the Uruguayan's deal at PSG in 2020.
Cavani, who is 31 may fancy a move away from the French capital owing to his age.
Be that as it may, Chelsea will not find it easy landing the striker, with reports suggesting the several European clubs are also monitoring Cavani's situation at PSG.
Serie A giants, Napoli, are keen on luring Cavani back to Italy, with Atletico Madrid said to be concerned by Diego Costa’s form and therefore considering making a move for the Uruguayan.
However, it is believed PSG would trade their star player to the Premier League, as Chelsea would easily meet the forward's buyout clause.
Earlier, TUKO.co.ke reported that Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri still belives his side is not well equipped to challenge for the Premier League title despite defeating Manchester City.
According to a report by the UK Metro, Sarri was wary when asked about his side's chances of challenging for the EPL silverware.
The Italian tactician insisted Manchester City remain one of the best teams in Europe, adding that it will be very hard for Chelsea to close in on the gap between the two sides.
