Cavani forms a devastating partnership at international level with Liverpool’s Luis Suarez, and has been one of the stars of Serie A since arriving in Italy; first playing for Palermo before being signed by their more illustrious rivals Napoli, where he has scored 49 goals in just 64 appearances over the last two seasons.
So far this season, he has notched 8 goals in 11 games for il Partenopei.
Such hot form has led to Cavani’s name being linked with virtually every elite club in Europe over the last 2 years, but rumours have persisted that his preferred destination would be the English Premier League.
With both Chelsea and Manchester City now fluttering their respective diamond-encrusted eyelashes at the latest ‘hottest’ striker in Europe, Radamel Falcao, Cavani’s agent has opened the door up to more perspective buyers.
Speaking to Ecuadorian newspaper El Telegrafo, Claudio Annelucci (Cavani’s agent) said: “Liverpool and Arsenal are the first clubs Cavani has agreed to talk to.
“It is no secret that Cavani wants to play in England; it is one of his biggest dreams.”
Napoli, for their part, have consistently denied that the player is interested in leaving the club.
