Napoli and Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani.
Napoli and Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani has been in sensational form for the last few years since joining Napoli. In just three seasons with the Italians, and 138 appearances, the 26-year-old has managed 104 goals for the club, a phenomenal record.
Cavani’s quality is obvious to all that watch him play, as he combines superb skill and strength, able to score a variety of goals from almost any position. He has almost single-handedly helped Napoli rise to one of the top four clubs in Serie A, and his 29 goals this season made him the top scorer in Serie A as his side finished second to champions Juventus.
His form will surely see him become one of the most expensive players of all time this summer, as a number of clubs seem ready to meet his large release clause fee of £54million. Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid appear to be the main candidates to land the Uruguayan, and he will surely go down as one of the signings of the summer for whoever gets him, as his tremendous ability and goal-scoring record would certainly give his new team a big chance of winning the biggest trophies.
He has previously welcomed the possibility of working with Jose Mourinho or Manuel Pellegrini, however, the latest reports suggest City have pulled out of a deal to sign him due to Napoli’s big asking price, leaving Real Madrid as the main favourites to sign him. With his current record of scoring in a side like Napoli, it would be a joy to watch him play alongside other greats at the game at the Bernabeu, feeding off service from the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Mesut Ozil.
Cavani looks like a player destined for greatness, and although he has so far only won the Coppa Italia and Copa America, he can make the step up with a bigger club and win league titles and the Champions League. He is certainly one of the best players in the world at the moment and deserves all the attention he is currently getting.
