According to the Mirror, the transfer of Cavani will smash the Premier League record for the highest signing amount for any player once again, even as sources in Chelsea signal they would not be held to ransom.
The striker who impressed with his performance at the Confederations Cup is currently on new manager Jose Mourinho's list as an ideal line leader for next season's face-lifted team, the report said.
The report added that French Champions PSG were prepared to meet Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis' demands for the full buy-out clause written into the Uruguayan's contract, which leaves Chelsea facing a significant dilemma.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are ready to meet Cavani's demands for a five-year contract worth around 150,000 pounds a week but are not willing to go above 45 million pounds, with Mourinho having Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski as Plan B. (ANI)
