The 33-year-old will officially become a free agent when his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires at the end of June, and there has been a host of speculation surrounding his future.
According to Sport, Cavani has emerged as a potential option for Barca, with the Spanish champions determined to sign a new forward ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
The report claims that the Catalan giants have lined up the former Danubio youngster as an alternative to Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez as it remains to be seen whether the La Liga club can afford the Argentine, who has a €111m (£100.5m) release clause in his contract at San Siro.
Cavani will leave PSG having scored 200 goals in 301 appearances for the French giants. body check tags ::
