Edinson Cavani could be the solution to Chelsea’s striker problem

Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud’s struggles in front of goal are regular news items.

Morata has scored just three goals whilst Giroud is yet to hit the back of the net this season for Chelsea.

Chelsea’s goal-scoring threat mostly comes from Eden Hazard and Pedro, before his injury.

So in light of the Blues’ attacking issues, could Edinson Cavani be the solution to their goal-scoring woes?

The Paris Saint-Germain forward has a absolutely ridiculous scoring record during his time in the French capital.

He’s got 170 goals in five seasons in Paris, and during his first season few seasons there, he had to settle for scraps as he played in Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s shadow.

But despite his excellent record, Cavani is still massively unappreciated.

Because of the money they paid for Neymar and Kylian Mbappe’s potential, Cavani is the odd man out.

And with rumblings of discontent coming from his camp, Chelsea could be a possible destination for the Uruguay man.

He would fill an obvious hole for Chelsea and at 31 years of age, wouldn’t cost the Blues too much.

Reportedly, Chelsea are considering a move for Cavani, with Maurizio Sarri looking to bolster his attacking options.

Also, Cavani’s exceptional work-rate is one of his key attributes and due to Hazard’s defensive reluctance, could help balance the team.

Despite Cavani entering the twilight of his career, he could still be an excellent addition for Chelsea in the short-term.
