Manchester City step up their pursuit of Napoli striker Edinson Cavani.

Manchester City are thought to have made contact with Napoli striker Edinson Cavani over a possible move to the Etihad Stadium.

The 25-year-old has attracted interest from across Europe this season thanks to his 28 goals in all competitions.

City could now land the Uruguayan with the promise of Champions League football, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Napoli, who are currently fifth in the Serie A table, are unlikely to qualify for next season's competition.
