Edinson Cavani is currently a free agent after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired last month, and he is now being linked to numerous clubs, including Newcastle United.
Ever since the Saudi takeover report emerged, Newcastle have been linked to several of Europe's top players, one of which being Cavani.
The 33-year-old has been linked with La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid, who are currently leading the race for his signature, with Inter and Napoli also being keen on signing the Uruguayan.
Julien Laurens, a very respected journalist when it comes to transfer news, has stated that Cavani has offers from the Premier League, and Newcastle are "definitely keen" on signing him.
Cavani has 116 caps for Uruguay, and has been a very respected forward throughout the years, earning the reputation of being one of the best strikers in Europe, even at his age nowadays.
Cavani would be a magnificent signing for Newcastle, who are in much need of a striker, and whilst he might be seeking Champions League football, the upcoming project at Newcastle might be intriguing enough for him to join the club.
