Tottenham are considering a summer bid for Napoli striker Edinson Cavani, it has been claimed.

The Uruguayan has hit 25 goals in 28 Serie A starts this term as the Azzurri chase a first Scudetto triumph since 1990.

The sensational form of Cavani has been the catalyst in Napoli's pursuit of glory - with the Partenopei three points behind leaders AC Milan - and, hence, the 24-year-old has frequently been linked with a move abroad.

According to the Daily Mail, Spurs are willing to part with upwards of £30 million to ensure they capture the free-scoring forward as the north London club ramp up their attempts to bring a proven goalscorer to White Hart Lane.


Spurs are known to have significant transfer funds at their disposal having tried in vain to sign a number of high-profile targets during the January transfer window.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp revealed Spurs had made approaches for Atletico Madrid star Sergio Aguero and Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi but their attempts to secure a marquee signing proved fruitless.

It is likely to be another busy transfer period and White Hart Lane as of June 1, and a deal for Cavani would represent quite a coup for Spurs.
