Chelsea owner Abramovich determined to land super striker from 3-man shortlist

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has a thee-man shortlist as he seeks a big name striker signing. The Daily Express says Chelsea are expected to offer Napoli a reported £50million-plus for their first choice, Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani, with whom they are understood to have already agreed personal terms.

If that fails - probably because Paris Saint-Germain are seemingly prepared to pay the £56million the Italians want for Cavani - Abramovich and co are expected to switch their attentions to the Brazilian striker, Hulk, who has indicated his willingness to quit Zenit St Petersburg despite a lucrative contract that doesn't expire until 2017.

Their third choice is the much sought after Polish international Robert Lewandowski, who has only a year left on his contract with Borussia Dortmund.
