Arsenal Believed To Be CLOSE To Signing One Of Europe’s Most Coveted Star!

Arsene Wenger’s plans to beef his armoury up with more world class talent has been handed a huge lift with reports according to Daily Star that PSG have left Uruguayan striker, Edinson Cavani, out of their squad for the winter training camp at Marrakech.

Unlike the Premier League, the French Ligue 1 has been on a winter break since the 22nd of December and PSG has embarked on a refreshment course in North Africa before hostilities resume after New Year’s Day.

However, the curious exclusion of Cavani has more than raised eyebrows about his role in the club going into the second part of the season and will give us massive belief of there still being a possibility of luring him away from France.

Wenger begged to differ with the rumors that had linked him with a £62m bid for the former Napoli man but what he remains convinced of is his admiration for the striker, and with that, we always know he will still be of interest to him. Not that we are in a special of dire need of a striker but how do we begin to reject a top-class forward of Cavani’s ilk when he’s available?

Obviously, the hitch here would be PSG’s asking price. Having stumped over £50m for him, they will be looking to get a major percentage of that in return and for Wenger to splash that much in January is as possible as him saying nice things about Jose Mourinho.

Welbeck and Alexis were to summer acquisitions in the attacking department this season and there is the agreement that quality is needed more, for now, in defence where we’ve struggled for consistency.

Cavani is easily one of the most sought-after forwards in World football, and as much as we may fake not to desperately need him, it will definitely hurt to see him in the Premier League in the kit of anyone of our rivals.

In Ozil, Alexis and Cavani, we’d have three of the biggest names of any European club and as shaky as our defence might be, the prospect of facing those three would fill every opposing team with awe and hesitation.

Yes, we need top class talent in defence – Hummels, Godin, Sergio Ramos – and in defensive midfield – Khedira, Witsel, Kondogbia – but there is surely no embargo on us adding more to our attack, even if it means sifting off a few of those whom we know are not really up to scratch with our high reaching demands of a first League title in a decade and a first ever Champions League trophy.

Let’s see what Wenger does now. There is no doubt he’d love to take advantage; perhaps time to do something against his will.

    sorry missed out a few words earlier

    when i got to the words DAILY STAR that said it all we certainly do not need cavani as our current front line looks good enough for the rest of the season plus next season we will have Afobe back and he looks like he can make the step up.

      Moron, there is no Wenger to believe here. Wenger didnt say he is buying Cavani. If you want to believe or disbelieve that applies to these moron click-hungry hacks.
