As Napoli are bracing themselves for a possible departure of star striker Edinson Cavani, and they have already started to search for replacements and have targeted young Dutch striker Ricky Van Wolfswinkel, who is on the radar of English sides Manchester United and Liverpool.
Napoli’s Uruguayan striker Cavani is being courted by the likes of free-spending sides Chelsea and Manchester City, who are both looking to bolster their front line. Even though Napoli are aware that the dream chance for Cavani of joining one of Europe’s elite would be very hard to turn down, they are hoping that the giant striker would stay in Italy next season.
Van Wolfswinkel, the 21-year old striker from Sporting Lisbon, got off to a flying start to his career at Lisbon, as he had a stellar debut season which saw him score 25 goals in all competitions.
The youngster has attracted interest from the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool, who are both eying the striker from close distance.
Now Napoli have joined the race for the highly rated star, and we can expect a very intense battle between these sides for the signature of Van Wolfswinkel.
