Arsenal fans look shocked here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim that they are working hard on a deal for Edinson Cavani and are closing in on the Paris Saint-Germain forward.
As one of our punters notes, we had thought that the Gunners would be signing a world class forward in the transfer window just passed but ended up signing Danny Welbeck from Manchester United instead.
Whilst £16 million Welbeck is not doing badly, the fact of the matter is that Arsene Wenger, along with Arsenal fans, know full well that the Gunners need a very top forward to compete with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City.
Our resident Gooners think that £55 million man Cavani could be that man.
If the Gunners were to complete a January transfer for the Uruguayan international, he could still make a serious impact on their season.
A transfer would also provide Cavani with an escape route from his life in Paris which is making him ‘sad’ and ‘unrecognisable’ according to recent reports.
Arsenal fans. Do you think signing Cavani could really be the finishing touch for the starting eleven or are there bigger issues for Wenger to deal with? Let us know your thoughts below.
