“Everton’s billionaire ownership, led by Farhad Moshiri, is planning the recruitment of individuals of the calibre of Edison Cavani and believes hiring Silva as manager will help attract them to Merseyside,” states the report in The Times.
Cavani is one of the best strikers on the planet and is a world-class footballer, and he would be a blockbuster signing for Everton.
The problem that Everton could face in attracting the Uruguay international and players of his calibre is the lack of Champions League football and future prospects.
If Cavani became available in January or next summer, then there will be a host of top European clubs lining up for him.
Would it be possible for Everton, a club who are fighting relegation at the moment, to secure the former Napoli star's services? No.
