Chelsea were looking for a skillful attacker during the January Transfer Window. According to the reliable sources, Giroud is leaving Chelsea during the window
Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid are interested in signing with him. That means the Blues desperately need a new forward. We recently found out, they were eyeing on both Edinson Cavani and Dries Mentes. As we see from the latest transfer rumors, the Blues stopped their choice on Napoli striker Dries Mertens. Frank Lampard seems to be keen to sign Mertens as he is an outstanding scorer.
Napoli looks like unwilling to let Mertens go. The Belgium International forward is among the top-ranking attackers, and Napoli definitely need his attacking reinforcement. But, as you may already know, Dries Mertens has a tense relationship to Napoli President.
Mertens’ contract expires in summer anyway. So, if Chelsea pays much enough, the deal may seem profitable to Napoli President.
Edinson Cavani – Another Attractive Transfer Target for the Blues
According to the recent news, PSG center-forward, Edinson Cavani had firmly decided to leave the team. Frank Lampard seemed to be keen to use this fact in his favor. But it is noteworthy that Cavani himself preferred to join Atletico Madrid.
Chelsea Boss showed his interest in Cavani a week ago, but PSG surprisingly demanded a €20million fee.
The club apparently wanted to maintain the Uruguayan International in their squad at least until summer. And they succeeded as no one expressed their interest in the forward anymore.
Finally, Cavani stays in PSG until this summer when his contract expires. According to some reliable sources, 32-year-old forward was ready to leave, but Atletico Madrid abstained for some reason.
Maybe Cavani’s attitude changes until summer, but at the moment, Chelsea has left no chances to hunt for him.
The last day of January’s Transfer window has just started, and in several hours we will know who goes where and for what fee they are leaving.
