is one of the admirers.

Cavani has scored three goals in the Premier League coming off the bench and Cahill thinks that if they help their Striker he can help them change things up.

"He's a striker who can finish, but, at the same time, to come on [against Southampton], assist, score two goals and have the prowess Manchester United need – he pretty much turned that game on its head,"

Cahill told Sky Sports


"He's a big, influential player. He has instincts, but it's not always just [to get onto] the first ball, it's the second ball. Even when you see him score off a shot that was going off target, he was there to head it in.

"He's always proactive, not reactive, and onto things. I love seeing that glancing header because it's awkward, the timing of the run and the way he's glanced at it – he doesn't need to look at the goal because he knows where it is.

"But even earlier on, when he's had a few glimpses this season, you can see the danger [he poses] – now he just needs the service.

"The influence he has so quickly when he comes on, and you see defenders give him a little bit of room – even though he's older. I think it says a lot about his presence from what he's done before. He's a big, big influence on that team."
