Chelsea's €55m for Cavani not enough

Italian media claim Chelsea have offered €55m (£46.7m) for Edinson Cavani, but Napoli are set to turn it down.

This week President Aurelio De Laurentiis confirmed he was in negotiations with the Stamford Bridge side for the Uruguayan.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Chelsea had a previous bid of €30m plus Fernando Torres rejected, as the Partenopei wanted only Ramires as part of any potential exchange.

Tuttosport claim a new proposal is on the table worth €55m cash (£46.7m), but Napoli are again set to turn it down, as it does not meet the price-tag.

Cavani has a €63m buy-out clause in his contract (£53.5m) and his club have warned he won’t be released for less than that figure.
