Former Arsenal player Paul Merson thinks Chelsea should make a move for Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani and sign him in January.
Cavani handed in a transfer request to PSG according to reports as he is keen to force a move away from the club. And Arsenal legend thinks the Blues should sign Edinson Cavani in January.
Speaking to the Debate, Merson said, "The main priority now is to get into the top four. At the start when Frank first took over with the young kids, it was just a transition year with young players. And it was sort of a free swing."
"But now they are in the top four and a good position - they have struggled in the games they have lost - to Newcastle, West Ham, Southampton, Bournemouth and they have not really looked like scoring in those games."
"So going forward a center-forward - they are talking about Cavani and when a player of that class and they do not come up that often, especially in January, for me I think it is an absolute must.
"And if you can get a Cavani in to teach Tammy Abraham - someone big and strong who holds the ball up, put the ball in the box and he will put his head in there. And I just think it is a no brainer. "
The Uruguayan, who turns 33 in February, joined PSG from Napoli in 2013 for £55m and has netted 195 goals in 269 appearances.
