Juventus are willing to include Sebastian Giovinco in a deal for Napoli striker Edinson Cavani, Goal.com has learned.
The Uruguayan striker has been suggested as the priority to bolster Juventus' attacking options as coach Antonio Conte is eager to fine-tune his squad in order to be ready for Champions League football next season.
Napoli have been non-committal when asked about the potential sale of Cavani as Ezequiel Lavezzi's future at Stadio San Paolo remains a hot topic of debate.
It is understood that Valencia striker Roberto Soldado is at the top of Napoli's preferences, but given the difficulties to sign the Spain international, the Partenopei are considering other options.
And Giovinco, who is co-owned by Juventus and Parma, could be included in a deal for Cavani in a bid to convince the Coppa Italia holders to let the former Palermo striker move to Turin.
The Serie A champions have until June 22 to reach an agreement with Parma regarding the 25-year-old, or the full ownership of the striker will be decided through a blind auction, in which the higher bidder of the two will secure the remaining 50 per cent of his economic rights.
Cavani, for his part, is believed to be willing to accept Juventus' €5million-a-year contract and further his career at the Bianconeri under Antonio Conte, of whom he is a great fan.

However, Stoke's abrasive style of football and this season's
