Edinson Cavani destined for Premier League switch?

Football News

Ever since Edinson Cavani left Italian side Napoli for French giants PSG last year, his career has taken a slight turn for the worst.

Despite widely being regarded as one of the best strikers in world football, he has had to make do with a position on the wing due to the brilliance of fellow PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He didn't struggle for form on the wing in his debut season in France, scoring a very good tally of 22 goals as his side won the French league and two other domestic cups.

What the rumours say

However, rumour has it that Cavani is not happy with his current role at PSG and could look for a move before the end of the month when the transfer window ends.

Premier League clubs Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United have reportedly shown interest in the 27 year-old but nothing has happened just yet, with Cavani's large price tag the likely reason why.

PSG are unlikely to be keen on selling the Uruguayan, who cost them around £55 million last summer, due to an injury to Ibrahimovic, but Cavani may push for a move if a big offer does come in for him.

Before moving to Paris, Cavani scored a spectacular total of 78 league goals in three years for former club Napoli in the Serie A, earning him recognition from a number of big clubs across Europe.

His suitors

Arsenal have been in need of a world class striker ever since selling Robin van Persie to rivals United, and therefore could be tempted into making an offer.

The Gunners' fans have grown increasingly frustrated with current striker Olivier Giroud and will definitely be keen to see Cavani join the club.

An offer of around £40 million would be hard for PSG to reject and could prove to be a bargain for Arsenal as his goals could fire them to both Premier League and Champions League glory.

He may not leave this window, but will be expected to leave in January if his current situation at PSG does continue.

If he does join an English side, he is likely to have a massive impact and score many goals, just like he did at Napoli, making him just perfect for the Premier league.
