The Turin side are desperate to add the Uruguay international to their attacking rank this summer, and are ready to include a number of players to facilitate a transfer

Napoli striker Edinson Cavani remains Juventus' top priority for the summer transfer window as the Old Lady are willing to include several players in a part-exchange deal, Goal.com can reveal.
The Bianconeri are determined to add a high-profile name to their attack ahead of the 2012-13 campaign and, although they are also keeping an eye on Arsenal's Robin van Persie and Chelsea's Fernando Torres, coach Antonio Conte has set his sights on luring Cavani to Turin.
The Uruguay international has been a key figure for Napoli, netting 32 goals in 46 competitive appearances this season and helping the side to the Champions League last 16 and a fifth-place finish in Serie A.
His displays have sparked the interest of Juventus, who are desperate to sign the 25-year-old and are willing to include Paolo De Ceglie, Sebastian Giovinco and/or Alessandro Matri in the deal.
Napoli are believed to be closely monitoring the situation of De Ceglie, and Juve could opt to send the left-back to the Partenopei in an attempt to get the star striker.
Furthermore Giovinco, who is co-owned by Parma and Juventus, is another player who has caught the attention of the Naples outfit, and the Bianconeri are ready to part company with their 50 per cent share of the attacker's rights to facilitate Cavani's transfer.
Meanwhile, 27-year-old Matri has been unable to fully convince Juve of his qualities and the club are ready to let go of the attacker this summer, despite topscoring in their Scudetto triumph with 10 goals.
