Frank Lampard only had good things to say about Edinson Cavani after being asked if he would like to see the striker at Chelsea .
The Blues have struggled for goals this season and have been downed by a host of lesser clubs 1-0 including against West Ham, Bournemouth and Newcastle.
Tammy Abraham has been leading the line, admirably so considering it is his first proper season at Stamford Bridge and leads the goalscoring charts with 15.
But ultimately the England international needs someone to alleviate the pressure and Lampard has spoken about a need for experience.
And only recently has one become available after Paris St-Germain director Leonardo revealed that Cavani was looking to leave the club after seven and a half years.

“We always said the same thing for Cavani. We hoped that he would stay at the club. Today, he asked to leave. We are studying the situation,” he said on Sunday.
“I’m not sure Cavani will be here in February.
“Today, there is nothing [to say he will leave]. But he has made the proposal to leave. We’ve never thought about selling him before.
“We will see how it turns out in the coming days, but we are listening to Cavani because we respect him. It’s a little clearer now, with him at the end of his contract.”

And Lampard responded by opening up on Cavani’s talent – whose contract expires in the summer.
“He is a great player, I played against him,” he told a press conference.
