Vialli tells Juve to buy Cavani

Gianluca Vialli would rather see Edinson Cavani of Napoli at former club Juventus than Arsenal’s Robin Van Persie.

Reports yesterday suggested that the Old Lady had already enquired about the Dutchman, while they continue to be paired with the former Palermo ace.

“If money is not a problem then I would like to see Cavani in the Juventus shirt,” the former Chelsea boss told Tuttosport.

“He can play as a centre-forward or as a wide attacker. He already knows Italian football well and he always puts the ball away.

“You certainly wouldn’t be making a mistake in signing Van Persie, but I have the sensation that he won’t arrive in Italy.”

The Old Lady have also been paired with Brazilian international Leandro Damiao of Internacional.

“He intrigues me even if the club wouldn’t need a pure striker should they decide to keep Fabio Quagliarella and Marco Borriello,” the Sampdoria legend added.
