Premier League new boys Leeds United look set to make an ambitious move for striker Edinson Cavani.
The news comes just five days after the Yorkshire club gained promotion to the top tier of the English football.
After 16 years away, Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani has spoken about a possible move for the striker.
The Italian owner told Football Italia: “In addition to his quality, Cavani could contribute with his physicality and adapt here, but I’ve never talked about him with the coach.”
So any move for the 33-year old Uruguayan would need a seal of approval from manager Marcelo Bielsa. He also went on the say: “Having said that, we’ve certainly thought about him and we’ll see, given he’s still available on a free transfer.”
With Cavani at this stage of his career, this may be his last chance to play in the Premier League. That is something Leeds may us as their advantage during the negotiations to secure the deal.
The striker leaves Paris-Saint Germain as their record goalscorer with 200 goals in 301 appearances (all competitions). He also managed to win six Ligue 1 titles during his seven years in the French capital.
If Leeds United can persuade Cavani to move to Elland Road, Bielsa’s men could cause some big shocks next season.
