Napoli want Dzeko-Cavani swap

Napoli want a deal with Manchester City to swap forward Edinson Cavani plus cash for Edin Dzeko, according to their owner.

Aurelio De Laurentiis was quoted dismissing reports that he was in London to talk to Rafa Benitez about the club's vacant managerial post. quoted him as saying: "I did not go to London for Benítez. You would have me appointing 15 coaches: it's true, I've heard them all in the last six months and I'm aware.

"Yesterday I was in London with [the managing director Andrea] Chiavelli and Bigon and for a simple reason: I have to prepare for the release of the film about Steve Jobs. However, I told Bigon: 'Go to City and take the chance to negotiate over Dzeko and see what they are willing to do for Cavani.'

"Who will be the new coach? I don't do things in a hurry. I'm trying to understand who will be the people to accompany me in the next journey."
