Arsene Wenger has just been handed a massive boost to his hopes of signing the PSG and Uruguay international star Edinson Cavani in the summer transfer window, assuming that the powerful striker is actually on the Frenchman´s transfer wish list that is.
If he wasn´t before then maybe Wenger should be adding him to it, because Cavani has just rocked his current club by handing in a transfer4 request according to a Metro report. THat does not mean that he will definitely be leaving the French champions but it makes it a whole lot more likely.
Perhaps the Parisian club´s president should spend a bit more time talking to his players before coming out with the sort of statement he produced earlier this week, as reported by the BBC. In it their mega rich owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi spoke about a few of his key players and declared that they would all be staying put.
Maybe that is what has caused Cavani to hand in this transfer request, as reports have long claimed that the talented forward was not happy with having to play second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic. So should Wenger now be making Cavani one of his major transfer targets, as Thierry Henry suggested he needs to?
