Boss Antonio Conte said in January: “The only thing I can tell him is to continue to work, to stay calm and to continue to work this way for the team.

“If he continues to work in this way, the chances arrive for him and the other players.

“I repeat I understand for a striker it’s not easy if you don’t score, but don’t forget for Alvaro it’s his first season playing regularly.

“He didn’t always play with Real Madrid and Juventus. I’m very happy with his commitment and the way he’s playing. He has to stay calm continue to play this way.”

Uruguay forward Cavani, 31, is Ligue 1’s top scorer with 27 goals and PSG’s all-time top scorer with 115.

He signed for the French giants in 2013 from Napoli in a £55m deal.
