Metro have Arsenal fans looking up in disbelief here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the publication have claimed that the Gunners are still hopeful of landing Edinson Cavani this summer.
Now as one of our punters notes, we did not think that was the case and Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has certainly gone out of his way to claim that he is done buying strikers this summer.
However, perhaps this is not the case after all!
Paris Saint-Germain’s Cavani has been linked with just about everyone this summer but with fellow forward Ezequiel Lavezzi now aiming to negotiate a new deal with the Parisians, we think Cavani may be allowed to leave should the right offer come in.
Any cash windfall would potentially allow PSG boss Laurent Blanc back into the transfer market before the window closes.
PSG are still sniffing around Real Madrid’s Angel Di Maria despite calling him ‘too expensive’ and should they be able to raise the £50 million needed to sign the Argentine winger from the sale of Cavani, that could play into Arsenal’s hands.
Arsenal fans. Is Cavani that ‘dream team’ striker needed to win the Premier League this season? Let us know your thoughts below.
