Cavani, wanted by a number of clubs such as Arsenal and Manchester United, closed Ligue 1 with four goals in the last three matches. He finished the campaign with 19 goals and five assists.

Cavani had another solid season playing for the dominant PSG. He has the chance to move elsewhere, but if Zlatan Ibrahimovic moves on from PSG, he could become their top forward at 29 years old.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani scored a goal as a substitute in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over Chelsea in the Champions League.

Cavani, who has fallen somewhat out of favor at PSG, found the back of the net for only the second time in the Champions League and the first time since the opening match against Malmo. Despite being brought off the bench nine times this season, he has 15 goals in 35 appearances across all comps and still has a clinical final ball when called upon.

Cavani fired three shots and scored his 10th league goal of the season in Sunday's 5-1 drubbing of Lyon.

El Matador is often overshadowed by teammates in such a deep and talented squad, but he has 12 goals and two assists in 20 starts this season and has been an integral part of PSG's dominant run. Cavani should continue to see plenty of scoring chances while playing alongside the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Angel di Maria, and another productive outing could be in store as they travel to take on Caen this Saturday.

Cavani came off the bench and scored the equalizer in the 84th minute of PSG's 1-1 draw with Stade de Reims on Saturday.

Cavani is in incredible form right now, scoring six goals in his last four games, including one in the Champions League. PSG are still without a Ligue 1 defeat, and Cavani has been a major reason why.

Cavani scored a goal in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over Malmo FF in the Champions League.

Cavani is on fire this year, scoring six goals in seven appearances across all competitions (four in Ligue 1, one in the Trophee des Champions and one in the Champions League). Alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Angel Di Maria, PSG has the offensive firepower to make a deep Champions League run.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani scored twice in Paris Saint-Germain's 3-2 win over Reims on Saturday, finishing this season with 18 goals in 30 league starts.

Cavani concluded this season with a scoring assault that included nine goals in his final six Ligue 1 matches. On the whole, the Uruguayan registered an impressive 31 goals in 45 appearances across all competitions, outscoring teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic by two goals for PSG's team-high this season. However, with Ibrahimovic's tally coming in 15 fewer outings, and his status cemented as PSG's star player, there remains speculation surrounding Cavani's future at the club, making his situation worth monitoring over the course of this summer.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani scored a penalty kick in PSG's 3-1 win against Nice over the weekend.

Cavani's record of nine goals through 29 Ligue 1 matches is a bit disappointing, but across all 38 appearances he's made for PSG this season, the Uruguayan has registered a much better tally of 22 goals. Six of those scores have come in the Champions League and Tuesday's match at Barcelona represents an occasion when his absolute best will be required for Paris Saint-Germain.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cavani took three shots and score in the 54th minute of PSG's 1-1 Champions League draw with Chelsea on Tuesday.

Cavani barely missed another goal that would have been the match-winner, but it tricked ever so closely away from goal. The score was his fifth in six Champions League matches this season.
