Chelsea set to miss out on Cavani to PSG

Chelsea appear to have beaten by PSG to the signing of Napoli striker Edinson Cavani.

Chelsea's attempts to sign Cavani appear over after Paris Saint‑Germain agreed to pay the striker’s £54million release clause.

The London Evening Standard says Chelsea met Cavani’s representatives last month and agreed the 26-year-old’s wage demands.

However, they have refused to pay Napoli’s asking price or to let their midfielder Ramires go the other way in a player-plus-cash deal. It means Chelsea are still looking for a top striker to lead the line next season – and they are running out of options.
