Arsenal are interested in signing the PSG duo of Adrien Rabiot and Edinson Cavani, according to talkSPORT.
The report claims that the Gunners have already held talks with the French moneybags over the availability of the two players, as Arsene Wenger goes about improving his squad before the close of the transfer window.
In fact, the report goes on to claim that Arsenal have now turned to Cavani, with French international Karim Benzema set to stay on at Real Madrid.

The Gunners have been interested in Benzema for some time now, however it appears that the Spanish giants aren't interested in offloading their star striker, meaning that the club could now swoop for Cavani over the coming weeks.
And it appears that Arsenal could yet secure the Uruguayan's services, with talkSPORT claiming that the forward is desperate to leave the club in this transfer window. The potential signing of Rabiot could also be on the cards for the club, with the same report claiming that youngster is also hoping to leave after failing to secure a regular place in the side under the guidance of Laurent Blanc.
Ok, we're all well aware that Arsene Wenger and Co. were hoping to sign Benzema from Real Madrid in this transfer window, but Cavani's not a bad alternative, if the Gunners can convince PSG to sell.
Ultimately, if the report from talkSPORT is to be believed and Cavani really is looking to depart the club, then a move to Arsenal would surely excite him.
Alongside the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, Cavani would only thrive in north London, and would no doubt prove the world-class striker the Gunners are seemingly in need of. Olivier Giroud is a fine forward, but Cavani is an upgrade.
