Sunderland made shock approach to Napoli for Cavani

Sunderland have made a shock move for Napoli star Edinson Cavani.

The Sunday Express says their new director of football, Roberto De Fanti, has already made an impact - with an audacious inquiry for Napoli's £50million-rated striker Cavani.

The phone call to Cavani's agent ended when it was confirmed that the Uruguayan star already had more tempting offers from Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

But the move for Cavani by De Fanti has caused a stir in scouting circles.
