Cavani to cost £60 million

Napoli have put a price tag of £60 million on long time Chelsea target Edison Cavani.

The Uruguayan international has hit twenty goals in twenty-six Serie A appearances this season, and has been linked with a summer move to one of Europe’s elite.

However, following initial reports of considerably lower figure, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed the 26 year olds buy-out clause.

Meanwhile, fellow Blues target Neymar has named Chelsea as one of his preferred destinations should he leave Brazilian side Santos.

The highly rated 21 year old, who has already scored over 100 league goals in his short career, listed Chelsea alongside Real Madrid and Barcelona when discussing his desire to one day play in Europe.

Elsewhere, the Daily Star have reported that the club have placed a £17 million price tag on Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

The 20 year was loaned to Atletico Madrid a week after signing for Chelsea in 2011, and has been one of their star players in the La Liga side’s pursuit of Champions League football for next season.

Finally, after reaching 200 goals for his club, Frank Lampard has set his sights on another remarkable landmark – 100 appearances for England.

The midfielder, who is currently on 94 international caps, is part of Roy Hodgson’s squad for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro.
