Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is exploring the prospect of signing PSG striker Edinson Cavani.

Tuesday's defeat to Sunderland underlined Mourinho's summer assessment of his squad that they needed more ammunition to dominate at the top level.

The Daily Mail says Cavani is interested in a move to the Premier League. Life with Paris St Germain is fine, even in the shadow of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but again the Premier League or La Liga is the ideal destination.

Manchester United like Cavani too and a deal in January for either them or Chelsea would need to hit the £54.3million mark that PSG paid to Napoli in August.
