The Uruguayan is already tied to the French champions until 2019, but extension talks are being held with the club's 42-goal top scorer

Edinson Cavani is nearing an extension to his Paris Saint-Germain contract, but he's looking for a number of demands to be met before terms are agreed.

The Uruguayan striker, 30, is already tied to the reigning French champions until the summer of 2019.

His efforts this season have, however, led the club to open talks regarding a prolonged stay, and it's understood that PSG are looking to add an extra 12 months to his current deal.

WATCH: Cavani's quickfire double

Cavani's netted 42 goals in 41 appearances this season, with eight games remaining for him to try and match Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s record haul of 50 from 2015-16.

Unai Emery’s side have relied heavily on the South American this season and are believed to be in the market for further firepower this summer.

Any additions are intended to complement Cavani, though, rather than replace him.

Discussions regarding a new deal with their star striker will, however, require a certain degree of compromise from both sides.

Verratti to discuss PSG future

Cavani is looking for any fresh terms to remove any punishment for a late return from holiday breaks, while also allowing him to manage certain sections of his image rights.

The former Napoli frontman is also looking for PSG to pay the taxes he is now eligible to pay after losing expat staus and for finances to be made available to help projects near his hometown of Salto in Uruguay.

There is a desire from all parties to get a deal done, with club chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi having taken charge of negotiations following previous discussions with director of football Patrick Kluivert.
