Edinson Cavani’s latest feud with Neymar hasn’t gone unnoticed as the duo was involved in a nasty bust-up. Both the player went gaga over a penalty in the 2-0 loss against Lyon. Neymar stepped up to take the penalty only to see his way is blocked by Cavani. However, the Uruguayan forward missed the penalty later which created uproar in the football circuit.

According to some reports, Everton are keeping a tab on the movement of the Paris Saint Germain frontman and might rescue him by offering their hand to the talented striker. Following the arrival of Romelu Lukaku, Everton did show intent by bringing in Sandro Ramirez and Wayne Rooney to the side but none of them has reached the level of the Belgian hitman.

The need of a striker is already being felt and Everton should go all out for the 30-year-old who is also interesting Chelsea. Antonio Conte wants to bring a top-notch forward to shoulder the responsibility alongside Alvaro Morata and might lodge a formal offer for the player.

Neymar reportedly wants Cavani sold in the January following their on-field heated argument. PSG splashed a world record £199m to rope in the Brazilian from Barcelona this season and he is unarguably their star player. The club hierarchy might give it a thought as they also have to match the financial fair play regulations in a bid to justify their spending and they could meet it by getting some players off their books.

Everton should turn their eyes to Cavani as bringing him would send a strong message to the other sides. They need to replace Lukaku with a big name and Cavani could be that name. The fierce goal poacher’s link up play is also one of the best in the business and the tempt of linking up with Gylfi Sigurdsson and Davy Klaassen would not bee too bad a lure from Everton.

Cavani would like to command a fat pay packet and the Toffees will have to break the bank to meet his demands. A player of his stature has never played before at the Goodison Park barring Rooney and he would bring a plethora of experience to the Merseyside.

PSG bought the player for a whopping £55.3 million in 2013 and would be looking for a decent profit over their investment. The transfer fee can be easily bargained but the Toffees first need to show their intent for the move. Can Koeman really land Cavani?
