Arsenal attack looked toothless yet again as the Gunners emerged victors against a ten-man Newcastle United side thanks to a Fabricio Coloccini deflection, but recent reports suggest that their attack would assume an entirely new dimension when Stoke City visit the Emirates Stadium next month, with the potential arrival of Edinson Cavani.
Arsenal have seen the likes of Lukas Podolski, Chuba Akpom and Yaya Sanogo leave this summer, with Joel Campbell likely to become the next candidate to follow their suit leaving only a handful of strikers to choose from. Furthermore, injury to Danny Welbeck further stresses upon the fact they must, at all costs, add a world-class striker to their roster.
The London outfit have been linked with a wide array of strikers all summer, ranging from Fernando Llorente to Karim Benzema, but Arsene Wenger has always been quick to rubbish the rumours.
However, reports stating that he may launch a bid for Paris Saint-Germain marksman on the deadline day seem to hold water to it as it does not emanate from some Emanuele Giulianelli.
With Edinson Cavani said to be frustrated by the fact that he would be forced to play on the left flank for yet another season by Laurent Blanc, prising him should not be a great difficulty for the Arsenal manager – provided he breaks the bank.
