China to tempt Cavani with €20m salary
Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani is being lined up by coach Fabio Cannavaro to join him at Tianjin Songjiang in the Chinese Super League, with France Football reporting a €50 million offer being readied.
In addition to a monstrous offer for the 29-year-old, the Chinese side will also tempt the Uruguayan with a salary in the region of €20m — just like Brazil forward Hulk, who plays for Shanghai SIPG.
Cavani is thriving without Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the Ligue 1 side and has 22 goals in just 21 games this term. He could be at peak value in his career if ready to chase the millions potentially on offer in China.
Former Italy captain Cannavaro also wants Javier Pastore to join from the Parisians, as the city of Tianjin look to keep up with big-spending clubs from cities such as Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou.
PSG line up mega bid for Perisic
Another from France Football, who suggest one new arrival at PSG could be Inter starlet Ivan Perisic as coach Unai Emery is said to be a huge admirer of the Croatian winger.
The Ligue 1 side are considering a €25m move for the 27-year-old, who is their first choice due to his suitability to France after a spell with Sochaux between 2007-2009.
Julian Draxler is also on their hit list, with the Wolfsberg star’s development somewhat stalling since his move from Schalke.
Serie A giants to fight over Clichy
Gael Clichy’s contract is running down and it appears that Pep Guardiola will not fight to keep hold of the French left-back, with Mundo Deportivo reporting his next destination is looking like Italy.
Inter, Roma and Napoli will battle it out for the former Arsenal star’s signature with a move in January not off the table.
With the 31-year-old’s deal set to expire next summer, Clichy however wait in hopes of receiving a more lucrative offer down the road.
Conte keen on Laxalt
The baby-faced Uruguayan was brought to Serie A by Inter, but failed to make the grade. However, after several loan spells, the 23-year-old is flourishing at Genoa, who made his loan deal permanent last summer.
Traditionally a left-midfielder, Laxalt can also play inside as an energetic, box-to-box attacking midfielder, making him a better fit than the outgoing Brazilian for the former Juventus coach’s side.
