However, the Italian publication believes that Atletico Madrid are front runners to sign the Uruguayan. Apparently they have already held talks with the player, but are yet to come to an agreement with his club. This could leave the door open for the Premier League trio to swoop for the 28-year-old.

The forward as struggled to dislodge Zlatan Ibrahimovic from the main striker’s role with the Ligue 1 champions, presumably leading to this turn of events. Despite being used on the wing at times Cavani has scored 24 goals in 47 appearances for the Parisian outfit this season, and could well be of use to the English sides.

Liverpool look most in need of the player since the departure of his countryman Luis Suarez from Anfield, but may struggle to sign him without Champions League football. This could mean the Red Devils and the Gunners are in a better position to get their man.
