Edinson Cavani: Paris St Germain continue talks with Napoli for striker

French champions PSG have emerged as the favourites to sign Cavani and are understood to have already made a £43million offer for the striker.

However, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has been insistent that the Uruguay international will not be leaving the Serie A club for less than the €63m (£54m) buy-out clause in his contract.

Leonardo believes PSG's offer for Cavani is 'interesting' and he is hoping there will be some positive news on a potential deal in the next week.

"We presented De Laurentiis with an offer that I consider really interesting," Leonardo told Il Mattino.

"The negotiations continue. We will remain in contact and, in these next few days, there could be news."

Reports have claimed that Cavani, who is under contract at Napoli until 2017, has been offered a five-year deal by PSG worth €10m (£8.6m) per season.

Premier League duo Chelsea and Manchester City have also been heavily linked with Cavani, who finished last season as Serie A's top scorer.

Chelsea are understood to have made an approach to Napoli, but are not willing to meet the release clause in the 26-year-old's contract.

Cavani recently confirmed he is keen to discuss the situation with De Laurentiis after playing for Uruguay in the Confederations Cup in Brazil.

He has previously admitted it would be a 'dream' to play for Real Madrid and has also criticised Napoli's asking price.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
