Edinson Cavani is one of the most sought after strikers in football at the minute, but the reports coming out of Italy recently suggested that there was no chance of him leaving Napoli this summer. Chelsea have just received some encouragement in their bid to bring Cavani to Stamford Bridge from the Italian agent Mino Raiola.
“Cavani, if he could, he would leave immedietely, but the president is not easy in these matters.”
We know that Cavani is not going to come cheap but how many tried and tested goal scorers do these days? Napoli are not in the financial position to turn down very good offers for their players, so it all depends on how much it will take, and how much Chelsea really want him.
It seems to be a close run thing between Hulk and Cavani as to who Roberto Di Matteo is going to go for. The price for the two players will be fairly similar, but they have different playing styles. Cavani is an out and out goal score, whereas Hulk plays more as a second dtriker or coming in from the wing.
I, personally, feel that with Eden Hazard and Marko Marin already signed, it is the central striking position that needs cover.
