It seemed to have been whittled down to just two clubs, but Paris Saint-Germain are making a sudden surge.
According to Le Parisien, the Ligue 1 winners have raised their proposal to €53m, although it is still below the asking price.
Last night De Laurentiis told a radio station that Cavani would stay at Napoli if he was “a real man” and would have to clarify the situation by July 20.
The forward is currently on international duty with Uruguay at the Confederations Cup.
Matias Silvestre could ruin the Antonio Cassano-Ishak Belfodil deal by refusing to join Parma.
The transfer is practically agreed between the two clubs, as Inter would hand over €10m cash plus the loans with options to buy of Cassano and Silvestre in exchange for Belfodil.
However, former Palermo defender Silvestre is holding up the entire situation by refusing to join Parma.
“There are no negotiations at the moment and I’ll only arrive in Italy next week to discuss it with the club,” agent Fernando Cosentino told Parma Today.
“Silvestre is an Inter player and he wants to stay at San Siro so that he can convince Walter Mazzarri.”
Inter did not actually want to sign Silvestre on a permanent basis after his loan spell, but Palermo pointed out the €6m option to buy was a mandatory one and refused to renegotiate.
The 28-year-old Argentine made only 20 total appearances for the Nerazzurri this term between Serie A, the Europa League and Coppa Italia
There is a limit on the number of non-EU players Serie A sides can bring into the country each year, so the Rossoneri have only one more slot left after signing Colombian defender Jherson Vergara.
Honda would tick every box for the Diavolo, as he is out of contract with CSKA Moscow on December 31 and therefore available at a cut-price fee.
He would also bring with him numerous sponsorship opportunities from Japan, where he has a huge fanbase.
It is not the first time Honda has been linked with a Serie A move, as he was also in negotiations with Lazio last summer.
The Cagliari midfielder has a €15m price-tag and is widely expected to be sold this summer with clubs in Italy and England pushing for his signature.
“Inter and Roma are two clubs who have had a dip in form this year and I know they are looking for new players to renew themselves,” Nainggolan told Indonesian media.
“Despite the fact Inter are the strongest club economically, I must admit that money isn’t everything in football.
“The key to my transfer will be in the visibility that club can give you.”
Although Nainggolan is a Belgian international, he is of Indonesian origin and is spending his summer vacation there.
“Honestly, Southampton gave me the biggest offer at the moment, but I don’t play football for money. My priority is looking for a brighter future for my career and Southampton is my last choice,” he also told Goal.
The 23-year-old shot-stopper has been consistently linked with the Giallorossi all summer, but according to Il Mattino and Globoesporte Napoli have clinched a deal.
Rafael’s contract with Santos expires in August 2014, so the club is eager not to lose him on a free transfer.
The Partenopei have offered €5m and many believe Santos are going to accept with the player agreeing a four-year contract worth €1m per season.
Instead, Roma are turning their focus towards Julio Cesar, who has been released by QPR following relegation.
Torino are trying to tempt Milan into selling them Urby Emanuelson after his spell at Fulham.
The versatile Dutch international can play as full-back, winger, midfielder, trequartista or in a trident attack.
He spent the last six months on loan at Fulham, but the Premier League side will not be making the move permanent.
Emanuelson is still not particularly in the plans of Milan Coach Massimiliano Allegri.
His contract expires in June 2014, so another loan would risk losing the player on a Bosman next year.
According to ItaSportPress, Torino are offering €1.5m for a co-ownership deal with option to buy.
