According to reports from the transfer market, Wenger may be looking to make a large outlay over the January window. Arsenal need to strengthen several areas of their team, and this transfer is to strengthen their forward line, where Danny Welbeck is currently the only fit striker for the team.
Arsenal have already got the ball rolling in their efforts to bring Edison Cavani to England in the new year, according to Sportsmole Cavani, who is thought to be unhappy at playing out of position to accommodate Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Paris Saint-Germain, is a player that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger admires, and he has expressed his admiration in the past.
I really like the player. I like his attitude.
But I think he plays a bit with the hand brake on. I feel that he is not expressing himself fully.
Arsenal officials will now reportedly fly to Paris to discuss the deal, although it is thought that they would have to stump up £55m to bring Cavani to the Emirates.
Should We Buy?
A player with the quality of Cavani should definitely be considered if he becomes available, however it is doubtful whether Arsenal can afford the price tag. Plus, other areas of the team require more urgent reinforcement, particularly the defence. If Wenger still has the funds after buying defensive cover, then he should look into Cavani, but the striker is not a top priority.
