This latest Arsenal transfer rumour is guaranteed to get the excitement levels among the Arsenal fans on the increase, as the PSG and Uruguay international striker Edinson Cavani is the type of centre forward that could turn an average team into a good one or a good one into a great one.
So after reading a report in the Daily Star which revealed that the Gunners were strong favourites to sign the 27-year old forward in the next summer transfer window, I really hope that there is some truth behind this rumour. With Paddy Power offering 17/10 on Arsenal and the next best prive being 11/2 for Real Madrid, the bookies certainly seem to think so.
The reason is, Arsene Wenger spoke in praise of Cavani to French TV at the weekend and suggested that the player might not be happy playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovich at the French champions. The Arsenal boss also suggested that Cavani could soon be moving on, so with us having been linked with the big striker before, people have put two and two together. But have they come up with four?
With the signing of Danny Welbeck from Man United and the return of Olivier Giroud in a few months, I am not sure that Wenger will be looking to sign another centre forward, but if the two current Gunners do not do the business this season, perhaps one of them could be heading for the exit. What do you think Gooners?
