Can Arsenal ever beat top teams to the signature of players like Edinson Cavani?

Arsenal are interested in signing Edinson Cavani on a free transfer reports the Sun, however, it does feel unrealistic that we can compete for his signature.

The same report also claims that Manchester United and Juventus are also keen on the PSG star.

Arsenal needs a top goal scorer like Cavani and if we did lose Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, it becomes even more important that we sign him or another top striker.

However, the odds of any top target joining us this summer are very slim, especially because they also have other top teams looking to sign them.

Arsenal has become a Europa League team that is paying Champions League wages, their recent plea for the team to take a pay cut is not really a good look and does reflect the financial state at the club.

If we struggle to maintain our current wages, then it makes little sense for fans like us to dream of quality signings because they cost money to sign, money Arsenal will most likely be very reluctant to part with on a big scale.

I want to think that we have money to spend on players that would change our current position, but I am a realist and know that clubs like Man Utd, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich etc will outbid us when it comes to paying top dollar in wages.

If Arsenal gets back into the Champions League then that may well change but I just do not see a player like Cavani and his very likely high salary demands being met by the club.

    Maybe if none of the top teams want him cus arsenal have lost their old pulling power, let’s be honest, arsenal is not a top team anymore, they might think they are but their dealing certainly tell a different story, they do business like a small club because they have become one, if the kronkes mercenary continue owning the club, they Wud hoover around the mid table for a bit then get relegated just as they were top 4 team but then, became a massive also ran team

    Maybe two seasons ago when Cavani was fighting for his place at PSG but he’s Now 33 and would cost in excess of 45-80 million and will have stupid wage demands.
    Not only that, he’s not PL proven, he could flop with the pace and physicality of the league as his best days are probably behind him. Don’t get me wrong he’s still a great striker but a would be a massive gamble.

    Would much rather see Martinelli and Eddie get more playing time and maybe go for someone like Raul Jimenez If we loose Auba – no language barrier with Arteta, PL-proven and would most likely jump at a step up from Wolves (despite them being above us in the table, lol!)
