His brother has been talking with Valencia about a prospective move, while Cavani has spoken to Valencia squad members and manager Gennaro Gattuso.

The La Liga side are interested in signing Cavani but are first trying to part ways with another Uruguayan, Maxi Gómez.

Turkish side Fenerbahçe are keen on signing Gómez but can’t agree on a fee yet with Los Che, BeSoccer reported.

Valencia, much like Barcelona, have financial troubles which make it difficult to sign new players. However, with Cavani being a free agent, there would be no transfer fee involved for his services.

The Uruguayan striker has previously been linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund in Germany as well as he looks to earn regular first-team football.

Edinson Cavani identified as possible temporary replacement for Sébastien Haller at Borussia Dortmund

Earlier Sports Brief reported that Borussia Dortmund will enter the transfer market for a new striker in the coming days.

The German side are looking to find a temporary replacement for Sebastien Haller, who was ruled out for most of the season as he undergoes treatment for testicular cancer.

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke confirmed that the club would sign a striker in the next eight to ten days. Bulinews now reports that Edinson Cavani may be approached to sign a short-term deal in Germany.
