​Paris Saint-Germain striker, Edinson Cavani's agent is reportedly in Spain in order to finalise a move for his client to ​Atletico Madrid with the ​Dailymail claiming that the Uruguayan has handed in a transfer request in order to leave the French capital.


Cavani has been heavily linked with a move away from PSG after struggling for gametime under manager, Thomas Tuchel this season - partly due to injury and partly due to the arrival of striker, Mauro Icardi on a season-long loan from ​Inter Milan.



Atletico for their part are very keen to add Cavani to their squad and have already seen a bid of £8.4million rejected for the striker by PSG, with it being understood that they would be willing to increase it to £12.6m, though the French side want a fee in the region of £25m for him.


Atletico are not the only side who seem to want to secure the services of the striker with the likes of ​Manchester United and ​Chelsea too making inquiries only for the 32-year-old to reject their advances.


Cavani who moved to PSG from Napoli in 2013, is PSG's all-time leading goalscorer with 198 goals from 292 appearances and despite being 32, he represents a good short-term solution for clubs struggling with lack of firepower.
