Edinson Cavani: Admired by PSG coach Laurent Blanc

Both PSG and Chelsea have been heavily linked with the Uruguay international, with reports on Tuesday night claiming the French champions had tabled a bid.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis then insisted Cavani will not leave the Serie A club for less than 63 million euros (£54million).

Now Blanc has professed his admiration for the player and his desire to bring Cavani to the French capital.

Speaking at a press conference, Blanc told reporters: "I would be very happy.

"He is a player that I love, like a lot of people.

"I saw him play several times with Naples and Uruguay, and should he be part of the Parisian team, I would be very happy."

The former Bordeaux boss also revealed he was looking at bringing Lille left-back Lucas Digne and former Barcelona defender Eric Abidal to PSG to provide competition for Maxwell, while midfielder Yohan Cabaye is another he is running the rule over.

He said: "Like all football clubs, there will be departures and arrivals, this is normal at this time.

"We still have technical discussions about the profile of players who can strengthen us."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
