Metro have our punters in the Football Transfer Tavern in a frenzy as they report that both Liverpool and Arsenal may need to put an end to their plans of signing Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani,
This is because PSG’s star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic has picked up an injury and Laurent Blanc is clearly so concerned that he now has serious reservations about letting Cavani leave in case he leaves himself short up top.
As one of our punters notes over a bowl of peanuts and a game of pool, this means that Brendan Rodgers will have to find another player to replace Luis Suarez with and Arsene Wenger can stay true to his word and not witness another forward arriving at the Emirates Stadium.
As a fair few managers have found this summer, top class forwards are few and far between and are certainly being sold for a premium price.
We think that it could well be a struggle for either of the Premier League sides to land a top alternative forward before the window slams shut.
Liverpool fans. Is this another massive blow for your title hopes? Arsenal fans. Do you think Wenger can manage to lure Cavani regardless? Let us know your thoughts below.
