Cavani pushing Napoli to accept Chelsea terms

Napoli striker Edinson Cavani is desperate to move to Chelsea.Il Mattino says the Uruguayan star, 26, has a release clause of around £53m in his contract that Chelsea would have to pay.

But the striker has approached Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis to try and convince him to accept a smaller fee.

Cavani is currently on international duty at the Confederations Cup, which is slowing down the resolution of one of the summer's biggest transfer sagas.
