Roma are leading the race to sign Edinson Cavani according to a report from Uruguayan journalist Gonzalo Ronchi, who works for Uruguayan news outlet Sport890.
Cavani is set to depart Paris Saint-Germain when his contract expires and as per Ronchi’s report, the coming week will be key for the veteran striker’s transfer to the Giallorossi club.
Cavani had been offered a short term contract extension from Paris Saint-Germain until the end of the season to enable him to play in the latter stages of the Champions League but he knocked it back.
To date, the three year contract offer from the Giallorossi is the main offer that the former Napoli striker, who has drawn links to Inter and Barcelona among many others clubs as of late, has received.
The 33-year-old forward has made 22 appearances across all competitions to date this season and in his time on the park he has scored seven goals and provided a total of three assists to his teammates.
