Former West Ham player Joe Cole has urged Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich to make a move for Paris Saint-German striker Edinson Cavani in the January transfer window. Cavani is set to leave PSG after he handed in a transfer request and has now become a potential transfer target for either Chelsea or Manchester United.

Lampard keen on signing Cavani

According to reports, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is keen on securing the services of the 32-year-old striker and Cole was of the opinion that it would be a great business for the Blues in the transfer window. While talking to a media outlet, Cole said that Chelsea has its transfer ban lifted in the month of January, adding that Abramovich will be willing to shell out money to bolster the squad.

Cole said if Frank Lampard achieves the task of helping Chelsea securing a top-four finish then it will be a fantastic result for him in his first season at Stamford Bridge.
