Giovinco in Juve mega-offer for Cavani

Juventus have reportedly offered a staggering €20m, Sebastian Giovinco and Alessandro Matri for Napoli hitman Edinson Cavani, but Luis Suarez is also an option.

The Bianconeri have made it clear they want a ‘top player’ to reinforce their attack for next season in the Champions League.

According to the Corriere dello Sport this morning, that man is Cavani, who Napoli said they would only release for €70m.

The proposal being put to the Partenopei is supposedly €20m cash plus Italian internationals Giovinco and Matri.

Juve now own Giovinco after buying out Parma’s half of the starlet for €11m, but could immediately send him to the San Paolo in exchange for Cavani.

Matri struggled to find space in the side towards the end of the season and has been linked with a move away from Turin.

However, Tuttosport claim Juventus are instead turning their focus back towards Liverpool striker Suarez.

This is because of rumours the Reds are looking to Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and therefore putting Suarez on the market.

Another candidate for Juve is Robin Van Persie, but a great deal depends on whether he renegotiates his contract with Arsenal.
