Edinson Cavani will be one of the big names moving this summer. The Uruguayan's contract with PSG is finished in June and he does not plan on renewing. With Neymar, Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappé, he knows opportunities will remain limited as a starter.

It's difficult to find a striker at that level on a free and there will be plenty of teams looking to sign the 33-year-old. He was close to signing for Atlético Madrid during the winter transfer market but negotiations broke down. Now, L'Equipe say that Boca Juniors are paying close attention to the situation and could make a move for him.

The idea is to pair Cavani with Carlos Tévez and the Uruguayan could be swayed in order to be closer to home. He has said before that he would love to play in the blue and yellow of Boca Juniors at some point in his career. "Boca is a team I really like," he said. Leandro Paredes, his teammate on the national team also said Cavani would like to play for Boca one day.
