Arsenal in the hunt for PSG striker Edinson Cavani

Arsenal are in hot pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain hitman Edinson Cavani reports the Daily Mail, after pictures emerged of Arsene Wenger jetting off to Paris.

The French manager has expressed frustration at his side's lack of cutting edge given the Gunners' tally of three goals in four games this season - two of which own goals - and appears to finally be acting on the growing issue. 

It remains to be seen whether the north London side can force a move at such late notice, though, with it reported that a deal for the Uruguayan could hit various complications, with his high price tag likely to be a sticking point.

Should Wenger pull off the deal, Cavani's arrival would be a massive statement of intent in terms of Arsenal's title credentials, with the general consensus being that a world-class striker is the missing link for a side that, since the departure of Robin van Persie, have lacked sufficient fire power up top.

Arsenal fans are all too used to deals falling through for high-profile names, though, with Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema epitomising this.

The Frenchman was linked with a move to north London throughout the duration of the summer, with many believing that a transfer for one of the world's most coveted strikers was possible.

Benzema, however, ultimately tarnished the rumours himself having posted a variety of Real Madrid-related social media posts, with the 27-year-old seemingly content with life in Madrid.

Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Gonzalo Higuain have also been frequently linked throughout the summer, though similarly, it looks as though deals for the pair are unlikely.

The signing of the 28-year-old Cavani would be one of the utmost magnitude, with his pace, clinical finishing and ability to turn a game on it's head something that Olivier Giroud is incapable of doing, though whether Wenger can pull off the deal with such little time is another question in itself.
