Napoli striker Edinson Cavani is attracting interest from Arsenal and Newcastle United.
The 24-year-old made waves at last year's World Cup in South Africa, in an Uruguay side that finished fourth, and the Barclays Premier League's elite are looking to bring the forward to England after months of speculation.
Although not in contention for a European spot, Newcastle United have the funds to match many of their league rivals, with the £35 million recouped from the sale of Andy Carroll available to manager Alan Pardew this summer.
A £35 million bid that could tempt Cavani away from Italy, would be uncharacteristic of Arsene Wenger who has been very reserved in the transfer market in previous years, whereas Newcastle have craved marque signings in their years in the top flight, and with money in the bank the club are set to do no different this summer.
Along with Cavani, the St James's Park club have been linked with the likes of Robbie Keane, James Beattie and Adriano over the past 12 months.
Manchester City have also been linked with Cavani, but given the size of Roberto Mancini's squad, and that he'll potentially be welcoming back Craig Bellamy this summer, it's uncertain whether there would be space in the Italian manager's squad for another star striker.
Cavani has been in superb form this season for the Serie A outfit, scoring 29 goals in 40 appearances backing up the hefty transfer fee that he's been linked with.
