PSG boss wants Uruguayan at the club this summer.
New Paris Saint Germain boss Laurent Blanc has outlined his desire to bring Edinson Cavani to the Parc Des Princes this summer, Sky Sports reports.
The 26-year-old has been on the Parisians shopping list all summer but they’ve had to compete with the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester City for his services – though the player has not yet given any indication over where his future may lie.
But Blanc laid his cards on the table by telling French newspaper L’Equipe: “If he was to join PSG, I would be happy.
“It would be a big sporting shot and a signal to potential opponents of PSG in France and Europe.”
He also stated that he thought Cavani could play alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic despite the two players having similar attributes: “I believe Cavani and Ibrahimovic are complementary.”
The former French national team boss is also hoping to bring in at least three players during this transfer window with Lille’s Lucas Digne and Newcastle’s Yohan Cabaye both said to be on his radar.
“Other reinforcements? You have noticed we only have one left full-back, so we will get reinforcements in that position,” said Blanc.
“Lucas Digne? I appreciate him, he is a player with a lot of potential, interesting for the future. It would be a good option.
“Yohan Cabaye? Once again, it will depend on the players we will have at our disposal. Yohan is an amazing player, we canall agree with that.
“We are interested so far because we are forecasting some things, but whether they will be realised, I don’t know.
“The team will be different to last season and I think we have good reason to have three or five new players.”
