Well this would be a typical Wenger move wouldn’t it? With all and sundry expecting the Arsenal boss to make his move for the Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema, or at least hope he becomes available in the last few days of the summer transfer window, Wenger could have had them all barking up the wrong tree all the time.
Because The Telegraph is reporting that the big name transfer target for the Gunners is actually Edinson Cavani.
The report claims that Wenger is ready to make his move after becoming aware that PSG could be willing to sell as the Uruguayan international and the manager Laurent Blanc have reached a new low in their relationship. Cavani would not be cheap but we could certainly afford him and give him the main centre forward role that he has been missing with the French champions.
This sounds like exactly the sort of big name transfer that the fans have been calling for and just the sort of boost that the dressing room could do with after the shocking start to the season we suffered against West Ham on Sunday. The only Arsenal player that might not be so keen is Olivier Giroud, especially as he has just signed a new contract extension.
So would you be happy if this Arsenal transfer rumour is true?
