1. Edinson Cavani
Cavani has always been a target along with Falcao and Chelsea were again beaten by a French team, this time PSG. Edinson Cavani is the perfect choice for the functional game-play of Chelsea.
Cavani has strength, athleticism and great shooting abilities. Moreover, the Uruguayan likes to work hard on the pitch, giving his 100 per cent despite him being a striker, something which Mourinho saw in Wayne Rooney as well. The Blues need a towering presence in the heart of their attack and Cavani would fit in perfectly. He can be the able replacement for Didier Drogba.
Chelsea’s current crop of strikers have scored only 15 goals between them in the league, a meagre return. Their inability to get their shots away against teams defending deep, has been the main reason for their failure. Samuel Eto’o recently regained some of his world-class form, but his age factor is always against him as he got injured regularly this season. Same with Fernando Torres who has become injury prone this season and under confident ever since he is Chelsea.
Edinson Cavani can cure all of Chelsea’s problems. He recently hinted about a possible summer move as he seems to be frustrated by Laurent Blanc’s tactics of using him in a support role to big man Zlatan Ibrahimovic. When asked about interest from Chelsea, Cavani said that Chelsea were interested in him in the summer but PSG had real confidence in their project involving him. He expressed his love for the English game as he said, “Yes,I love it.”
