Napoli set to lose star forward?

In the most newsworthy point of the day, the Football Transfer Tavern has broken out into debate over the future of Napoli striker Edinson Cavani. The player who can boast 57 goals in 81 games has been dubbed one of the ‘last heroes in Serie A’  after the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Paris Saint Germain and according to several publications, hemay be set to exit the league himself.

Rumours have long surrounded the striker who has been nothing short of prolific and should Napoli fall behind in the race for a Champions League spot, Goal.com report that a second season in the wilderness may prove too much for the player who saw highly rated team mate Ezequiel Lavezzi depart for PSG also in the summer.

As our landlord points out, there are no shortage of takers for the forward who has scored 38 per cent of Napoli’s league goals this season and has been forced to deny a pre-contract agreement with Atletico Madrid in case of Radamel Falcao’s proposed exit. Cavani has long been linked with both Chelsea and PSG.

It seems a guessing game of where exactly the player will go, with even Arsenal rumoured to have approached the player, yet one thing does seem certain – the Uruguayan will be leaving in January or at the latest in the summer with his agent previously stating: “It is no secret that Cavani wants to play in England; it is one of his biggest dreams.”

Do you think Cavani will be playing his trade in the Premier League next season? Vote in our polls below.
