Palermo coach Stefano Colantuono admits they're seeking a replacement for Manchester City-bound Mark Bresciano.
He said: "I have spoken to sporting director Rino Foschi and President Maurizio Zamparini and they are both determined to make a move in the market to replace Bresciano.
"We have to find a substitute for the Australian in that role. Edison Cavani is a good player who can do great things, he could play in Bresciano's place.
"However, he is very dangerous upfront and I don't think it is wise to move him back from our opponents' goal."
