Reports in Italy are claiming that Chelsea have agreed terms with striker Edinson Cavani over a potential move to Stamfird Bridge but the Blues are yet to strike a deal with Napoli, according to the Mirror.

The Uruguayan hitman has become one of the world’s hottest properties after another excellent season in Serie A that saw him score 38 goals in just 43 games. This form has lead to speculation over his future and a move to the Premier League has been touted as a possibility, with the Mirror suggesting Chelsea and Man City are keen on bringing the 26-year-old to England.

It appears Chelsea have taken a huge step towards luring the striker to Stamford Bridge with the newspaper claiming the Blues have now agreed personal terms with Cavani and all that’s required is to strike an agreement with Napoli over a transfer fee.

Chelsea have so far refused to meet the strikers €63million (£54m) buy-out clause and the report understands that the Italians are determined not to sell their prized asset for anything less, with president Aurelio De Laurentiis insisting Manchester City are the only club to make a formal offer so far – but again they have refused to match his release fee.

The Mirror understand that Cavani wants to hold talks with De Laurentiis to discuss his future but the president believes that unless his clause is activated there is nothing to talk about, putting the ball firmly in Chelsea and Man City’s court.

If these reports are accurate though and Chelsea have already agreed personal terms with the player, I’m sure De Laurentiis may have something to say about that as there is no agreement between the two clubs.

    I really hope that this is true! I was worried that Man City would get fleeced for a player that is above average, at best. A cheeky £15M bid for Lukaku would be a steal and represent a great deal for a player who offers a lot more than Cavani!!!

      Simon do u really think Chelsea would sell lukaku? You have lost your mind if u think that will happen. However I agree with about Cavani, way overpriced. I would prefer Lewandowski and if that’s not possible just allow lukaku to start from day one of the new season.

        Hi Jake, I don’t think Chelsea would sell Lukaku, but if they sign Cavani, he will be further down the pecking order. Lewandowski is a better prospect, than Cavani, for both clubs.

    It will be a very nice move for Chelsea and Cavani, but the price is so high. For me i dont want any club to spend such on a single player. Will he play alone on the field and if other players does not pass ball to him how would he score. Instead of paying such, interested clubs should find alternative players with less amount Because i know there are alot of them Only waiting to shine if giving the opportunity.

    Chelsea should use part of that money that napoli are demanding for to sign rooney and one other player.cavani is over priced,though he’s a gud striker but not at that amount of money.

    i see no reason to sign cavani, it will be a pure waste of money due to the fact that it is a gamble bringing him to premier league i sugest cfc get a fake 9 and we can train lukaku or demba ba to be that, we have 3 good strikers bt you can sell demba ba and bring rooney to chelsea. With our quality in midfield we can oust any team.

    God forbid! Why must people mention Hulk,as a player should buy if cavani fails? Did they watch dis concluded confederations cup in Brazil or Russian league? Pls pls pls Hulk is not a good goalscorer but he can disturb defenders,period!

    Cavani is very good and dangerous to any opposing team.he has strength and speed,bt d price is too much honestly. Anyway his president is playing a childish game.bt i know he wil sale cavani.chelsea shud calm down,since suarez wil go 2 real madrid,man city is not interested,so is chelsea alone facing cavani.a good game if we(chelsea) can calm down.up chelsea!

    Please Mou bring Roony to chelsea he is better than caving. Let pay less and get the work done than spending high without result. Learn from the past.

    How can Chelsea agree with Cavani when Napoli have not accepted our price? We are about to waste another millions of pounds for noting. Why should Chelsea go for a player of 40 million plus for God’s sake. He is overrated and does not worth more than 25million pound. Let Chelsea use this big money to buy Lewandosiki and Rooney. With these two striker plus the ones we have, winning all the trophy available for competition is assured. Pls forget Cavani and go for the two.

    Cavani price is weight too expensive insteed of sighning cavani lets bring in hulk or rooney to do the job for chelsea right now hulk is an easy terget for chelsea and rooney want to leave man u so they are both easy and feared.

    I think cavani is overpriced. Chelsea should give napoli £40 to finish the deal.

    Edison is a gud striker, i admire d way he plays…bt he isn’t worth £54m, if Napoli kip insistin on d fee, they’re other alternatives lyk Lewandoski,Jovetic, Cardozo…they’re all gud. And i dnt see Roney cumin 2 chelsea, man.u will rather sell 2 a foreign club.

    I think cavani is good does not make the napoli presi to hang on that espensive price, he has another motive to wishhunt the player. Remeber and trase the napoli presdo he links to the family of the old slave marchants, “go to hell napoli presdo“
