According to The Times, Everton are interested in signing Edinson Cavani from Paris Saint-Germain.

It has been reported that the Toffees also want Watford boss Marco Silva to become their new manager to attract players such as Cavani.

“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 30-year-old has won Ligue 1 three times with PSG and scores goals left, right and centre, and he also has a lot of experience in the Champions League.

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.
