The Daily Express are the talk of the Football Transfer Tavern this evening after claiming that Arsenal could well be set to land Edinson Cavani.
The £50 million-rated forward is reportedly on the brink of an exit from Paris Saint-Germain with manager Laurent Blanc losing faith in him and the forward’s attitude to playing on the wing, playing second fiddle to the walking ego that is Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
As our landlord notes over a packed bar, Arsene Wenger has noted that he will dip into the transfer market should the right player come along.
We think that an actual opportunity to land someone as good as Cavani HAS to be taken although quite if Wenger will be willing to shell out such an astronomical amount of cash remains to be seen.
We also think that Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal will be paying close attention to this situation with the Red Devils linked to Cavani earlier this season.
Arsenal fans. Could Cavani be the answer to your prayers? What would happen to Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck? Let us know your thoughts below.
