Arsenal prepare to offer Olivier Giroud for Edinson Cavani

Published 3 Comments

Arsenal have made a cheeky offer of £32 million plus Olivier Giroud to sign PSG striker Edinson Cavani, according to The Daily Mail.

Cavani is reportedly a target for Arsene Wenger, who is looking to beef up his frontline as he prepares for a genuine title challenge this season. It now appears that he is finally ready to make an offer for the Uruguayan.

The striker has also been linked with a host of clubs across Europe this summer after being reportedly ready to quit the club.

Despite an injury to star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic last weekend, PSG may be willing to allow him to leave if Giroud comes the other way, with the Frenchman being a cheaper alternative, thus reducing their wage bill enabling them to fall into line with Financial Fair Play regulations.


Cavani is reportedly far from happy with life in Paris, and is ready to quit this summer after being forced to play on the wing for large parts of last season.

PSG operate a loan striker system, and he has been unable to shift Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has bagged 58 goals in 69 games since his arrival from AC Milan, leading to him being ready to end his short stay in France.

Speculation is rife that Wenger is preparing a big money package to bring Cavani to the Emirates this summer, to solve his long running striker crisis.

They have been short of a world class striker since the departure of Robin Van Persie to rivals Manchester United, and many see Cavani as the solution to the problem.

He has shown in the past two transfer windows that he is ready to splash the cash in order to bring some world class talent to the club, and as a result Arsenal are the bookmakers favourite to land the striker, who scored 23 goals for PSG last season.

Arsenal's well documented striker problems have led them to be linked with several names during the transfer window.

They were heavily linked with a move for Liverpool bound Mario Balotelli, and there name has never been far from rumours regarding Loic Remy.

The thought of Cavani leading the line behind an attacking trio of Ozil, Sanchez and Cazorla would have Arsenal fans drooling, and a deal could be on the cards with PSG keen to offload a striker on high wages and who is unhappy at the club.
