The Arsenal transfer rumour that has lasted for as long as Arsenal fans can remember is back again, but this time it is looking more realistic and is likely to happen, with reports that Arsenal are back in the pursuit of £47 million pounds rated Edison Cavani.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker has been linked to Arsenal for some seasons now and was even reported close to signing during this summer’s transfer window, but all this time it’s only this summer that Arsenal were in the financial position to realistically make a bid for the Uruguay international.
Arsenal are currently in need of a world class striker to assist the in-form Olivier Giroud and are reported to have a budget specifically set aside for a striker of such quality.
Cavani, 28 is not for sale in PSG, but it is believed that the Paris club will accept a bid in the region of £47 million.
Arsenal are desperately in need of a striker now with Welbeck’s long absence seeing in-form Giroud being overworked, and with a title push in place, the gunners need the reinforcement even as they chase the Premier League title, and would be looking to seal a potential title winning deal for Edison Cavani.
