Arsene Wenger: Cavani & Falcao are animals

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed his admiration for both Edinson Cavani and Radamel Falcao as both players have impressed early in their Ligue 1 careers.

The Gunners tactician says both players are fantastic but admitted he is struggling to decide which of the two is the more dangerous.

Arsenal were once linked with a move for Cavani while he was still at Napoli, but big-spending PSG eventually secured his signature in a deal worth in the region of £55million, making him the most expensive player in France.

The Uruguay international has made a good start to the season scoring two goals in Ligue 1, while Falcao, who was another £50million plus signing forf AS Monaco, has already notched five times in only six matches.

Despite the difference in early form, Wenger believes it is hard to see the difference between the South American goal machines and is just happy to watch them display their "animal" talents.

"I believe it's very difficult to make a difference because for me they are very similar. They have an animal aspect inside of them. Both of them are animals," Wenger told Bein Sport.

"I think Cavani is a bit more mobile, and makes more runs off the ball, and Falcao is a bit more of a box player, a bit more of a killer than Cavani.

"But both of them, I love. And honestly, not to protect one or the other, but it's very difficult to make a difference between the two."
