Morata himself has enjoyed a fruitful start to life at Stamford Bridge, scoring eight goals in 14 games in all competitions for the Blues.

Morata only signed for the Premier League champions in the summer, putting pen to paper on a £65m move from Real Madrid.

However, he allegedly voiced his discontent at life in London, although later suggested he would “happily sign a ten-year contract”.

The striker had given an interview to Italian media, claiming he regretted leaving Juventus in 2016 – while saying he found London too much to handle.

Morata allayed fans’ fears, saying: “We have a problem of understanding the interview. If Chelsea offered me ten years I would probably sign it.”

But with money-bags PSG said to be intrigued in a move to replace Cavani, he could be tempted to head to Paris to get away from the hustle and bustle of London.

Chelsea themselves are said to be keen on a move for Cavani – with a swap-deal potentially on the cards.

The Uruguayan very publicly fell-out with world-record signing Neymar in September – as the pair fought on the pitch during a 2-0 in over Lyon.

Both Neymar and Cavani tussled to decide who would take a penalty during the game – with the Uruguayan winning the battle, but missing the spot-kick.

Since then, Neymar “unfollowed” Cavani on social media, while reportedly demanding PSG sell the ex-Napoli man.
