That's the contention from TuttoMercato in Italy and it comes a few days after uncorroborated suggestions on social media that the Blues failed with a late bid for the striker in the last transfer window.
Cavani is being talked about in terms of leaving PSG following the arrival of Neymar which appears to be unsettling squad harmony there. The French giants deny that they offered Cavani €1m to hand penalty-taking duties over to the Brazilian following his world-record transfer from Barcelona but the Uruguayan did public his annoyance that he had been forced to move aside when it comes to spot kicks.
Cavani has since apologised for spitting his dummy out but there will, no doubt, be plenty of speculation over his future and Everton's need for a striker to replace Romelu Lukaku means their name won't be far away.
Cavani has been with PSG for four years now and has notched 95 goals in 140 appearances in Ligue 1 but talk of him joining the Blues is largely fantasy. His wages alone and desire for Champions League football would probably make it a non-starter.

These so-called (egotistical) superstars are not good for team spirit and are vastly expensive.

Best thing would be if our scouts could find the 'next Cavani' but obviously it's not that easy. Someone like Werner or Aboubakar might be ambitious but more achievable.

Money talks. Really depends on Moshiri and his Investors, because the fines for ducking the FFP are negligible.

Just like the Costa saga, leak it to a couple of foreign journalists to make it look authentic, and carry on doing nothing.
At least it gives the fans something to take their mind off the dross that's being served up.

Man City started to buy top players because they had real investment and put serious dough on the table. I don't think Everton have that same kind of investment or intent yet.

Speaking of which, I'd still like us to go for Batshuayi above all the names linked so far. With Chelsea selling Costa, they would be left short though, so, unless they also buy in January, that looks unlikely too.

If Giroud doesn't want to come then Cavani won't.
At the end of the day Koeman and Walsh were clearly led to believe that Giroud was Everton bound and took their eye off the ball. Koeman has basically said as much without naming who the striker was.
As a result, we're back into fantasy land because we're a club with money, who need a top striker and there aren't many about. So, as a result, we will be linked with every single decent striker that might possibly leave their club from now until next summer.
Waste of time reading it.

I've still got serious man-love issues with Edin Dzeko.

We are going to need to spend way over the odds now to attract World Class players, and if we do that, are they going to turn up? Look at Tevez, he's taken the piss in China.
