Inter turn to PSG striker Cavani

With Beppe Marotta frustrated by Romelu Lukaku and Edin Dzeko problems, Inter are reportedly turning to PSG striker Edinson Cavani.

According to Sportitalia, the Nerazzurri have realised the cost of Antonio Conte’s first choice strikers are simply too high after a series of proposals were rejected.

Director Marotta hinted as much when speaking to Sky Sport Italia today about Manchester United’s Lukaku demands.

Inter still €20m from Lukaku

Inter have reportedly offered €60m plus bonuses for Romelu Lukaku, but Manchester United’s €85m asking price could end negotiations.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, the written proposal sent to Old Trafford is worth €60m plus bonuses, with payment spread out over several years.

However, Manchester United are not budging from their initial assessment of €85m plus add-ons.

The difficulty in selling Mauro Icardi is making things worse for Inter, who otherwise cannot afford such a large expenditure on one player.

Inter: From Lukaku to Cavani?

Inter have reportedly switched their attentions to Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani after being priced out of Romelu Lukaku.

Manchester United are continuing to demand in excess of €80m for Lukaku, which Inter are not prepared to spend.

With that in mind, Tuttosport and Corriere dello Sport both claim the alternative is Cavani.

The former Napoli hitman is viewed as a cheaper option, given he is 32 and has only one year left on his PSG contract.

Arrivederci Hamsik

With Marek Hamsik moving to Dalian Yifang, Vilizar Yakimov pays tribute to the Napoli legend, as his departure marks the end of an era under Vesuvius.

Marek Hamsik: 12 years, 520 games and 121 goals. Nobody has played more games or scored more goals for Napoli than Marekiaro, who, despite winning only three trophies, has already earned his place in Calcio’s history books.

The Slovakian has been the main pillar of Napoli’s success in recent years and the €5.5m that the Partenopei paid Brescia in 2007 for his services proved to be a real bargain.

Cavani continues to be linked with a second spell at Napoli, having left for PSG some six years ago, but the Uruguay striker admitted staying with the Ligue 1 champions was his priority.

“Right now, I’m playing towards the end of my contract and possibly my career,” the 31-year-old told L’Equipe.

Chelsea looking at Cavani?

Chelsea are looking beyond Gonzalo Higuain and targeting Edinson Cavani from Paris Saint-Germain for €56m, according to the Sunday Express.

Maurizio Sarri has requested a new striker during the January window and his first choice was Higuain, but the complicated situation between owners Juventus and his loan with option to buy deal with Milan put Chelsea off.

The Sunday Express newspaper now claims that they are turning their focus towards PSG hitman Cavani instead.

Chelsea resume Higuain pursuit

Chelsea are still determined to bring in Gonzalo Higuain, with Alvaro Morata potentially loaned to Milan and €36m paid to Juventus.

Milan took Higuain on loan for €18m with option to buy for another €36m to be paid at the end of the season.

However, with his poor form and Financial Fair Play problems, the Rossoneri are reconsidering the costly deal.

According to Sportitalia and The Sun newspaper, Maurizio Sarri still has his heart set on a reunion with his ex-Napoli hitman Higuain.

Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli insists they were offered Cristiano Ronaldo, but “it was a deal that was out of reach”.

The Portuguese star signed for Juventus over the summer, but Partenopei President Aurelio De Laurentiis declared they too had been offered CR7.

“He was offered to us, it’s true,” Giuntoli told Sky.

“We have a good relationship with [agent Jorge] Mendes, and since [Faouzi] Ghoulam’s renewal we speak often.

There have been consistent reports of a massive proposal for Koulibaly, in the region of €105m for the Senegal international and ADL essentially confirmed it.
