If this recent Arsenal transfer rumour turns out to be true then perhaps before January someone at Arsenal could get in touch with our possible signing Lucas Moura and get him to have a word with his current club colleague Edinson Cavani.
As good a player as the Brazil international might be, I think most of us would rather have the Uruguayan international striker at the Emirates. There were those reports of dressing room strife between Cavani and Neymar and although the club and both players have played it down it seems like there is a problem.
PSG apparently are going to try for the transfer of Alexis Sanchez in January and if that happened I would be even more keen to see Cavani head the other way, but it seems a lot more likely that Arsenal will be adding Lucas Moura to our playing staff.
The versatile and talented 25-year old has been in Paris for over five years now and has been a big part of their team but this season has seen him drop down the order and play just over half an hour so far, which is The Mirror is reporting that he has been advised to leave and the former PSG defender Alex seems to think Arsenal will be his destination.
He said, “I would like to see him at Arsenal. They play cleaner football, more technical.
“He had contacts, I believe. That would be a good option for him this winter.”
With his pace, power and technical ability I think Moura would fit in well at Arsenal and with this apparent contact, could it be about to happen come January?
