Arsene Wenger will use the upcoming week to decide between making a move for Edinson Cavani or Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck, reports The Daily Mail.

The transfer window is moving into its final few days and, despite signing four players already, Arsenal are expected to be one of the most active clubs in the Premier League. The Gunners need a centre-back and a striker before the window closes on September 2.

Striker options

Having seen Alexis Sanchez struggle to make an impact up front against Everton, Wenger is considering reinforcing his forward line. There is also significant doubt over Lukas Podolski's future after he was left out of the squad.

Edinson Cavani has been linked with a move to north London in recent weeks with PSG reportedly keen to offload the Uruguayan in order to balance the books. However, having signing from Napoli for £55 million just last year, a bid of £51 million is required to seal his signature.

That is why Wenger is considering a move for Welbeck, who has been told be Louis van Gaal he can leave.

Welbeck would be available for significantly cheaper with an offer of £15 million thought to be enough. However, whether officials from Old Trafford would be happy to sell to the Gunners is another matter.

Champions League qualification

Wenger's decision could lie on whether Arsenal qualify for the Champions League. Besiktas travel to the Emirates Stadium for the second leg of the qualifier after a 0-0 stalemate in Turkey.

If Arsenal qualify it will guarantee around £30 million in revenue, allowing Wenger to consider more expensive options.
