Metro have Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern licking their lips at a potential late Christmas present that seems to involve a £50 million-rated forward.
Edinson Cavani is reportedly on the verge of a huge January transfer window move from Paris Saint-Germain after the Ligue 1 champions decided that the forward was more trouble than he was worth and we think that would make a huge difference to Arsenal in the second half of the season.
The Parisian club are now believed to be willing to sanction the Uruguayan international’s £50 million transfer away from the Parc Des Princes this January.
The Gunners are of course struggling to get into the Premier League’s elusive top four at the minute with Tottenham, West Ham United and Southampton providing stiff competition.
Whilst they are far and away out of the title race, we think that the club could well impress in the FA Cup and also the Champions League as they look to remain in the hunt for silverware following their victory in the former competition last season.
Cavani meanwhile is desperate for a move but quite how how his arrival would be received by current Gunners strikers Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud remains to be seen.
Arsenal fans. Would the signing of Edinson Cavani be a game changer for your Premier League title credentials? Can you really see Wenger signing another striker in January? Let us know your thoughts below.
