Cavani is believed to make ₤200,00 a week in Paris.

Atletico Madrid had a bid of ₤ 8.5 million turned down earlier this month.

Chelsea are additionally pondering a move for in-form German forward Timo Werner from RB Leipzig however a January bargain is not likely.

Tammy Abraham feels the pressure of winning the goals for Chelsea and when the striker doesn’t, they grapple with a back-up plan.
