Chelsea's pursuit of Edinson Cavani is reportedly at risk of being scuppered by the Paris Saint-Germain striker's wage demands.

Cavani has handed in a transfer request at the Parc des Princes after slipping down the pecking order following the arrival of Mauro Icardi last summer.

Speaking on Monday, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admitted he is a fan of Cavani and hinted his side are in the running to sign the Uruguay international.

Despite being out of contract in less than six months' time, PSG are believed to be holding out for a £15m fee for Cavani, who is also wanted by Atletico Madrid.

However, the Evening Standard suggests that it is the player's wages that are proving to be the biggest stumbling block, with the 32-year-old reluctant to take a wage cut from his current salary.

PSG's all-time leading goalscorer is currently on in excess of £360,000 a week, it is claimed, and he will also demand a hefty signing-on fee.

Report: Liverpool block Xherdan Shaqiri exit amid Roma interest

Liverpool have reportedly informed Xherdan Shaqiri that he will not be allowed to leave the club this month.

The Switzerland international sat out Sunday's league win over Manchester United with a calf injury and has been used just nine times in all competitions this season.

Roma are rumoured to have approached Liverpool over a possible loan move for the 28-year-old, but Sky Sports News claims that the Reds are unwilling to to let him leave.

Shaqiri is instead expected to remain a squad player at Anfield until the end of the campaign, at which point his future will be reevaluated.

Roma may now move for former Liverpool winger Suso, who has been at Serie A rivals AC Milan since 2015.

Manchester United chief Ed Woodward 'has no plans to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer'

Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward reportedly intends to stand by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer even if the club miss out on European football.

The Red Devils suffered a 2-0 defeat to bitter rivals Liverpool on Sunday and are a whopping 30 points adrift of the runaway leaders.

Of more concern to Woodward will be the five-point deficit the Red Devils have to make up on fourth-place Chelsea in the race for a Champions League spot.

Regardless of United's final league position, though, The Sun claims that Woodward will show faith in Solskjaer by keeping the Norwegian in charge and backing him financially in the summer.

The report indicates that the Glazer family are supportive of Woodward's plans, with United to continue targeting young and British players in the summer transfer window.

Next up for United is a home meeting with Burnley on Wednesday evening.
