Edinson Cavani picks Arsenal as No.1 club

Published 5 Comments

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani is ready to move to Arsenal if he's forced out of Ligue 1, according to the Express.

The Uruguayan international, who has endured a tricky time at the French moneybags of late, has been linked with a whole host of clubs in recent time, with the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool also seemingly interested in his signature. 

However, it appears that, despite interest from the likes of United and Liverpool, Cavani would rather complete a move to north London.

Tricky time

The same report has, however, suggested that the forward won't be sold in this January transfer window, but looks destined to move on at the end of the season. 

It has certainly been a torrid time for Cavani of late as he's struggled to make an impression under Laurent Blanc at the French champions.

A summer move to Arsenal, then, may well be on for the enigmatic striker, but he certainly won't come cheap. In fact, a number of reports have rated him at around £50 million, so the Gunners may well have to break their own club record in order to land the PSG man anytime soon. 

Arsenal options

There's no doubt about it, despite the array of attacking talent already plying their trade in north London, Cavani would no doubt improve Wenger's options in the forward department. 

The Gunners, of course, already have the likes of Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud in their strike force, but Cavani would offer them another option in attack as they go in search of long term success. It remains to be seen, however, as to whether Arsenal will step up their interest in the Uruguayan in the near future.

Of course, the duo of Manchester United and Liverpool could yet swoop in for Cavani, but it now appears that they are already behind in the race to bring him to English soil.
