The Gunners have long been linked in numerous Arsenal transfer rumours with the Uruguay international striker Edinson Cavani. With all the money in the English Premier League and with Arsenal being one of the biggest and most financially solid clubs in it, we are bound to be linked with any top name transfers, but I don’t think there is any chance of this one happening.
Even though, according to a report in The Mirror, there is a good chance that Cavani will be leaving his current club PSG sooner rather than later. The striker has never really settle with the French champions since his £55 million move from Napoli last summer.
And not only is he unhappy at having to play on the flanks or wait for Ibrahimovich to sit out a game for him to play his favoured central role, but PSG are not that happy with his attitude and performances. So because Arsene Wenger has previously praised the 27-year old, some parts of the media feel that Arsenal are the favourites to sign him but it is not going to happen Gooners.
What would be the point of signing Cavani only to use him in the same way as PSG? And if Wenger was looking for another centre forward, he would not have offered Olivier Giroud a two year contract extension. The Frenchman has not got the pace to play out wide. Danny Welbeck has but I can only see him doing so on occasion, as he is taking to the central role like a duck to water.
So I reckon we can forget about Cavani or any other big name striker for that matter. What do you think Gooners?
