Chelsea transfer target Edinson Cavani is continuing to discuss terms with Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-Germain, according to the club's sporting director Leonardo. 

French giants PSG have emerged as the recent favourites to sign the highly-rated Uruguayan striker, who has recently returned from the Confederations Cup with Uruguay.

Premier League sides Chelsea and Manchester City have both been strongly linked with a move for the forward, but PSG have reportedly tabled a £43m bid for the striker. 

But Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has been adamant all summer that their prized striker will not be leaving the Serie A club for less than the £54m buy-out clause currently stated in his contract. 

However, the race for the Uruguayan's signature could be concluded in the coming days, with the PSG sporting director confident a deal can be resolved shortly. 

Speaking to II Mattino, Leonardo said: "We presented De Laurentiis with an offer that I consider really interesting. The negotiations continue. We will remain in contact and in these next few days there could be news." 

Reports emerging from Italy have claimed that Cavani is set to be offered a five-year-deal by the French champions, worth £8.5m per season. But with the Uruguayan under contract until 2017 if no offer is eventually made, Cavani will definitely be staying in Naples. 

And it seems that PSG are the only club left in the race for Cavani's signature, with Chelsea and Manchester City being priced out of a move for last season's Serie A top scorer.

Chelsea did make an initial approach to Napoli, but weren't willing to trigger the £54m clause in his contract.
