The Uruguayan hitman has struggled at times this campaign due to be being picked out of position on the right-flank. Similarly, he has reportedly grown frustrated with playing second fiddle to club superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The player’s supposed disenchantment with life at the Parc des Princes has fuelled rumours of a departure from the club, with the EPL duo, as well as Arsenal, Liverpool and Juventus all being linked with his signature.
Any potential suitors will be looking to beat the chasing pack and get their bids in as soon as possible following a delightful performance by the former Napoli forward on Friday.
Cavani opened PSG’s scoring after only two minutes, with a superb close-range finish.
He then extended the reigning champions’ lead just after the break with a powerful effort.
Finally, he added a fifth goal for Laurent Blanc’s side on 70 minutes, when the quick-thinking Marco Verratti sent a delightful chip through to Cavani, who volleyed home magnificently.
A Maxwell header and a Zlatan double ensured PSG trounced Guingamp 6-0 to tighten their grip on top spot in the Ligue 1 table.
