Cagliari prepare Ederson swoop

Cagliari look set to swoop for Lyon's Brazilian midfielder Ederson, it is reported.

The Sardinians need a replacement for Andrea Lazzari, who they sold to Fiorentina this summer.

While Gelson Fernandes was an option, it's now believed they are targeting another Brazilian.

Ederson was once valued at €13m, but injuries have seen his price-tag drop to a far more affordable €5m.

Still only 25, he can play in different wide midfield systems and is out of contract in June 2012.

However, Cagliari face competition for his signature from Lazio.
