Edinson Cavani latest: £66m deal, Chelsea ‘make loan offer’, PSG’s demands and Man Utd’s stance

There is now not too much longer to go until the January transfer window closes, with Frank Lampard and Chelsea on the search for reinforcements in the final week of the window.

The Blues are now able to add players after serving a transfer ban during the summer, and Lampard is said to have funds to be able to make signings.
