The Blues head coach has not ruled out a move for the Paris St Germain striker this month.
Frank Lampard has not quash rumours linking Chelsea with a move for Paris St Germain striker Edinson Cavani.
The Uruguay striker has handed in an official transfer request at the Parc des Princes, with LaLiga giants Atletico Madrid and a few sides across Europe looking to secure the 32-year-old's services.
Chelsea, who criticised FIFA after their transfer ban was lifted by The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), have also been linked with Cavani, however, Lampard didn't say whether or not they are interested in signing the front-man.
When quizzed about the striker, whose contract expires at the end of the season, the Blues boss said as The Guardian quoted: “He’s a great player; I played against him and I always loved his mentality and attitude, and obviously his goalscoring record speaks for itself.
“I’m not absolutely aware of what the situation is, so we’ll see. He’s an experienced player, but so are many other players out there.
“I think we are young, and we know about the transitions. The idea of bringing in experience is something I’m certainly not absolutely looking away from.
“Because sometimes the young players need a little bit of help, and if that’s the case then that may help us.”
