LIVERPOOL TO MAKE CAVANI APPROACH? It’s important to take everything sites like Tuttomercatoweb says with enough salt to satisfy a chippy tea, but every now and then they’ll get something right. Will that be Edinson Cavani coming to Liverpool? No, probably not.
The claim is that Cavani’s agent would like his client to move to the Premier League, while his family would also like to leave Paris. So there.
Quite why that means he will definitely move to Liverpool is unclear. Even if Cavani did leave Paris St Germain – and having waited a few years for that central striking role why would he? – Is Chelsea surely a far more likely destination?
