Manchester City are hoping to finalise a move to sign Napoli striker Edinson Cavani.

Cavani, 25, is rated one of the best strikers in Europe and has been earning rave reviews in Serie A.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is looking to bolster his forward line as uncertainty surrounds the future of Edin Dzeko.

Reports in Italian newspaper Il Mattino claim Manchester City have already made an offer to Napoli and want to open talks with the Uruguay international.

The Premier League champions are prepared to offer him a lucrative five-year deal.


Quite why Man City would need further attacking options is currently unclear but could lead to speculation that Roberto Mancini would be looking to offload one or more his current striking options.

Roberto Mancini’s side clearly had no problems finding the back of the net last term, notching up 93 goals in Premier League action alone last term. Sergio Aguero is the club’s chief tormentor and perhaps the one forward that the Man City boss will not consider offers for.

Mario Balotelli has had many problems both on and off the field of play and perhaps the young Italian has been given one to many ‘last chances’ but Roberto Mancini has a lengthy connection to the 21 year old that began when he was Inter Milan boss so perhaps he will get the benefit of the doubt this summer.

Carlos Tevez went AWOL and showed Man City, the club, the city and it’s fans, a great deal of disrespect over the past 18 months but apparently the Argentine now wants to stay, perhaps he will get his wish although a lot could depend on whether a sizable offer came in for the pint sized striker.

Edin Dzeko may look to leave having seen his first team chances dry up halfway through the last campaign.

Edinson Cavani will be disappointed that his Napoli side could not secure a Champions League spot and would no doubt be interested in a big money move to Man City.
