The 26-year-old has scored 29 goals in all competitions for the Azzurri, who are four points clear of third-placed AC Milan in Serie A.

The Uruguayan has reportedly been linked with a potential summer move away from the San Paolo with the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Paris St Germain all keeping tabs on the player.

Agent Claudio Anellucci told Rai Sport: "Edinson never told me he had any intention of leaving Napoli. It's great thinking there is so much interest in him because it means he is doing well."

The club's president Aurelio De Laurentiis has already slapped a £60 million release clause on Cavani's head in an attempt to ward off potential suitors.

"I also think this might be the correct fee for the player," said Anellucci. "It's a bit early to talk about this though.

"But it's also normal that a player like Cavani wants to win and then ask the club what their plans are for the future."

The player has scored over 70 league goals for Napoli in three-seasons since joining from Palermo.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
