Chelsea are set to continue their summer transfer business with new top signings. Having already signed German starlet Andre Schurrle from Bayer Leverkusen, Blues manager Jose Mourinho is still looking for more attacking options.
The Londoners have been lately chasing Uruguayan international Edinson Cavani and it remains to be seen whether Chelsea can somehow secure the signing of one of the best strikers in the world right now. For now reports suggest that Chelsea have made multiple moves in last 24 hours.
BBC report that Chelsea are eager to land Holland international Marco van Ginkel from Vitesse. Mourinho has met the Dutch midfielder and the blues can seal a deal if they can splash 8 million pounds for the youngster.
Van Ginkel featured in 41 games for the Eredivisie side last season and scored 8 goals. The Netherlands star is a regular starter for the Dutch side and helped them get 4th place in the league in the last campaign.
On the other hand Sky reports that Blues have made an enquiry for Napoli’s star striker and last season’s Serie A top scorer Cavani.
El Matador is likely to leave the Italian side this summer and talks between Chelsea and Napoli may take place this week. The main obstacle for Blues in this scenario is Cavani’s 63 million Euros buyout clause.
Blues can be considered favorites to land Marco van Ginkel but Cavani is surely going to cause more problems with his hefty price tag and also because of the interest shown by other rich European clubs like PSG, Madrid and Manchester City.
