If the reports coming out of the French media are true, it could spell bad news for Arsenal fans and our hopes of signing the PSG and Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani. The powerful fr4ont man seems destined to leave the French champions as he is clearly not happy about the way things have gone since his transfer from Napoli.
And the Gunners have been strongly linked with a transfer move for the 27-year old, but with Arsene Wenger seemingly happy with his attacking options, at least for now, and the squad desperately needing cover in the areas of central midfield and defence, it was widely believed that any move from us for Cavani would not happen until the end of the season.
But a report in the Daily Star explains that this could be too late and that our Premier League rivals Liverpool could beat us to the punch and sign him this month. The latest from France is that Cavani and his international team mate Ezequiel Lavezzi are due for a hefty fine and a playing ban after turning up five days late after the winter break.
Brendan Rodgers is desperate for more power up front after Mario Balotelli flopped and the absence of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge left his team struggling to score. Even if Liverpool do not go for Cavani, it seems likely that another club will if PSG really are ready to sell.
