Chelsea on verge of securing Napoli ace Cavani

Chelsea will secure the services of Edinson Cavani in the next few days according to reports.

The Uruguayan striker will leave Napoli to join the Blues for £49million after it was revealed that owner Aurelio De Laurentiis would head to London to finalise the deal.

Raffaele Auriemma from Mediaset Premium said on Channel 34: "Just returned from the United States, De Laurentiis will be in London to close the deal Cavani to Chelsea."

New Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has clearly flexed his muscle with this one as Cavani gets set to depart Napoli who recently appointed last season's Stamford Bridge interim boss Rafael Benitez.
