Valencia have emerged as surprise contenders for the signature of Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani.
The Uruguayan international has been linked with a move away from the Parc des Princes this summer, with reports in England suggesting that Manchester United and Arsenal will go head-to-head in a bid to bring him to the Premier League.
However, French newspapers have it that Valencia, backed my billionaire owner Peter Lim, are set to pull out all the stops to make the 28-year-old their marquee summer signing.
PSG are understood to be willing to listen to offers for former Napoli star Cavani as they line up a swoop for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, while at the same time trying to ensure they keep within UEFA’s Financial Fair Play guidelines.
United and Arsenal are long-term admirers of Cavani and Atletico Madrid are also believed to be keen, although the English clubs’ biggest rivals could now be Los Che.
