Paris Saint Germain manager Thomas Tuchel has indicated that striker Edinson Cavani may leave the club in the current transfer window.
Following the Ligue 1 club’s 1-0 victory against Lorient, the German manager was asked about his striker’s future and he admitted that he is “not sure that Edinson Cavani will be here in February,” (via Metro).
That could open the door for the Uruguayan to move to Tottenham Hotspur this month, with the north London club having been linked with him in recent weeks (El Pais). Indeed, Spurs may well be searching for a striker after Harry Kane was ruled out until April at the earliest having had surgery on his ruptured hamstring (tottenhamhotspur.com).
If they could get him then Cavani would perhaps be a good addition, considering he has scored 339 goals in his club career with 302 of those coming in Europe for both PSG and Napoli (Transfermarkt). Tuchel’s comments will certainly give some Tottenham fans hope that he could sign for them and plenty of them would certainly like a deal to happen after the Independent suggested there was interest earlier in this window.
Indeed many have taken to Twitter to express that they would love the club to sign Cavani, here is what some had to say…
This is the type of signing we should be going for…… but we all know Levy will end up giving us Benteke.

For me this is the only striker transfer that makes sense.

If he comes to Spurs, it would be amazing!

Would be a fantastic signing, provide competition for Kane and would change mentality of the team with such high profile striker

Perfect addition. A winner, experience, will lift the fans, won’t have to be googled, low priced purchase and sell on to China / MLS. Even if it doesn’t work, still best option atm
