Napoli want Dzeko or Jovetic

With Edinson Cavani's move to Paris Saint-Germain looking increasingly likely, Napoli are stepping up their chase for his replacement.

Reports on Thursday evening suggested that the Uruguay international is on the verge of joining the French champions.

And as such, Rafa Benitez's men are keen to bring in a high-calibre striker to fill the gap left by the 26-year-old.

Gazzetta dello Sport believe the men that the Partenopei are chasing for that honour are Manchester City's Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic.

Dzeko was used predominantly as a substitute for the English side last season, but still managed to score 14 League goals. He could be available for around €20m.

The San Paolo side are also targeting Fiorentina's young Montenegrin, who, after heavy speculation linking him with Juventus, looks to be drifting further away from a move to the Bianconeri.

Antonio Conte's side have already signed Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente this summer, and have had two bids for the Viola goalscorer turned down already.

Napoli are proposing a bid of around €25m for the 23-year-old, but Vincenzo Montella's side are looking for something nearer €30m.
