Edinson Cavani is idolised by Napoli fans and has become their main man since Ezequiel Lavezzi departed for Paris Saint Germain last summer. 

However, with continuing rumours linking him with a move away from the club,Napoli may lose their key man this summer. 

It would be a huge loss for the Naples club but, if Real Madrid were to sign him, it would be a huge coup for the Bernabeu outfit. 

The Uruguayan striker has scored over 30 goals in each of his past three seasons at Napoli. With the creativity of Cristiano Ronaldo, Mesut Ozil, Angel Di Maria and Luka Modric at Real Madrid, Cavani will score many goals at the club.

He has also scored 13 goals in 49 appearances for his country. He helped guide Uruguay to the semi-finals of World Cup 2010 and also to win Copa America 2011. On the international stage Cavani does not shy away.

He also has Champions League pedigree. He helped guide Napoli to the quarter finals of the competition during the 2011/12 season. The 26-year-old scored against the likes of Manchester City home and away and Chelsea during the campaign. 

At Real Madrid Cavani can be an important player in the big European games. 

Cavani is big and strong - he is known for his great hold up play and ability to bring other players into the game and high work rate but most importantly he is a clinical finisher. 

Cavani is a commanding presence upfront for Napoli, he is agile and powerful and has the pace to be a counter attacking threat. Cavani is also versatile as he can play on either wing and is not afraid to change his position for the good of the team due to his unselfish nature.

The striker could cost Real Madrid upwards of £50m but would be an important acquisition for the squad. He has the technique to shine in the big games with his all round ability and will no doubt be a success for the Spanish club if they indeed win the race for his signature.
