Arsene Wenger has reportedly been spotted in Paris amidst claims he is eyeing up a deadline day double swoop for Edinson Cavani and Adrian Rabiot.

The Gunners boss is believed to have held talks with PSG, according to the Daily Mail, in the hope of pressing ahead with a move before the window shuts this evening.

Arsenal have had a quiet window to date having only sealed a move for Petr Cech from Chelsea for £10 million, however it seems as though Wenger is trying to end the summer with a bang.

The north London club appear in need of a striker having managed just three goals in four games so far this season - one of which was an own goal in their 1-0 win against Newcastle over the weekend.

It seemed as though Arsenal had their hearts set on Real Madrid's Karim Benzema but appear to have switched targets after admitting defeat over the Frenchman, with Cavani now on their radar. The Daily Mail report that Arsenal are still active and looking to do business however PSG are highly unlikely to sell up despite claims that a £45 million fee had been agreed.

A deal for Rabiot appears more likely. The young winger has struggled for playing time in Paris and have been watched by Arsenal scouts who have reported back favourably to Wenger who could now sanction a move.

The Mail add that PSG are looking to offload Ezequiel Lavezzi but Arsenal aren't keen because they are well stocked in the Argentinian international's position, and will push ahead with their enquiries over Cavani and Rabiot, who was previously linked with Tottenham.

The Gunners have had a mixed start to the season having lost to West Ham on opening day and played out a 0-0 draw with Liverpool two weeks ago, and the club's fans will hope they can bolster their ranks before the window shuts.

Will Wenger be able to pull off this surprise double swoop?
