Atletico Madrid are believed to be readying a bid for Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani, who has also been linked to Manchester United in recent months.
The Uruguayan forward is set to be one of the key protagonists of the upcoming transfer window, with several clubs linked to his signature.
United and Arsenal have been heavily linked to the forward, according to the Express, although the same source have also indicated that Juventus are closing in on a move for the forward, with a fee of £36 million being reported.
However, according to Telefoot [via Le 10 Sport], Atletico Madrid are also desperate to sign the attacker and are readying a bid of their own.
With Mario Mandzukic nearing the exit door at the Vicente Calderon—Arsenal are believed to be keen according to the Metro—and Fernando Torres failing to convince, Diego Simeone is looking to bring in a proven goal-scorer.
Cavani has managed 16 in 34 Ligue 1 outings so far this term, and a further six in the Champions League, but PSG are open to selling in order to comply with financial fair-play regulations according to the French source.
