5 Potential Landing Spots for PSG Forward Edinson Cavani

Edinson Cavani, as is normal for this time of year, has been linked with a number of clubs around Europe. The Paris Saint-Germain forward hasn’t enjoyed the best of times in the French capital of late, and that has alerted teams that the Uruguayan forward could be available in January.

The 28-year-old has scored 10 times in Ligue 1, but with only one goal in the Champions League, a huge dip in his recent form may have convinced the French giants to look at any offers that come in.

Cavani has yet to start a league game in 2016. Laurent Blanc has played the forward as the No. 9 striker in recent cup games, and given a chance to play in the role he so desperately wants, the former Napoli player has failed to take advantage.

"There is a problem with Cavani’s behaviour but my job is to think of the entire squad as a collective,” Blanc told press, via Michael Gadd of MailOnline.

“We did hold a staff meeting and among the various issues we discussed were Cavani and his complaints. The desires of the individual can’t affect the rest of the team."

Blanc prefers to play 4-3-3 with Cavani playing on the left of the front three. Ever since his arrival in 2013, El Matador has always played second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic—as long as the Swede is at the club, that will never change, but the PSG boss still thinks Cavani has a role to play.

"I believe that he can score here but I understand if he wants to consider other career opportunities."

Despite his questionable form, clubs will believe that if they bring the forward in, they can change his mood and return him to his goalscoring ways.

Here are five potential landing spots for Cavani.
