Frank Lampard was asked about the possibility of signing Edinson Cavani in his press conference on Monday. He did not rule out the possibility of making a move and expressed his admiration of the player – some Chelsea fans are thrilled with the possibility of signing the Uruguayan.

The PSG forward has seen his first-team chances limited at the Parc des Princes this season. Mauro Icardi’s arrival has seen Cavani make just four starts in Ligue 1 and he is clearly not happy in his current situation.

Sky Sports have reported that the PSG sporting director, Leonardo has confirmed that the 32-year-old has handed in a transfer request. This may lead to his exit this month and Chelsea could be set to pounce.

In his pre-match before Arsenal, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was asked about Cavani. As reported by the club website, he said: ”Cavani is a great player. I played against him and always loved his mentality and attitude, and obviously his goalscoring record speaks for itself. I’m not aware of his situation so we’ll see.”

Here are some Chelsea fans reactions on Twitter to the speculation:
