The Uruguay ace publicly fell out with new signing Neymar over set-piece duties.

After he refused a £880,000 offer to step aside and let the Brazilian take penalties, the odds have shortened on him leaving in the next window.

PSG need to balance the books to avoid an expulsion from the Champions League and flogging Cavani would appease Neymar.

And Paddy Power have the Blues as 11-2 favourites to sign Cavani after picking up a huge windfall for Diego Costa.

Everton (10-1), as well as Manchester United and City (both 14-1) are also in the running.

Cavani is able to play out wide as well as lead the line, which could make him an ideal foil for Alvaro Morata.
