Chelsea make loan offer for PSG striker Edinson Cavani

Chelsea have made a loan offer for PSG striker Edinson Cavani.

The Times says Chelsea have followed up their interest with an official bid, which includes paying a loan fee as well as Cavani's £360,000 a week wages.

The Ligue 1 champions are claimed to want at least £5m to allow the forward to depart this month, despite his contract expiring at the end of the season.

And PSG chiefs would still prefer to sell Cavani permanently before the end of January, believing that they could yet receive up to £23m for the former Napoli star.

Chelsea's offer would cost the club in excess of £12m until the end of the season, at which point the veteran would become a free agent.
