PSG striker Edinson Cavani can leave the club in this transfer window, according to manager Laurent Blanc. 

As reported by the Daily Mail, the experienced head coach has admitted that there is a 'problem' with the striker's behaviour at the Parc des Princes, insisting that the player's desires can't affect the rest of the side. 

Cavani, of course, has long been recognised as one of the most lethal strikers in Europe - he has still been producing the goods this season with 13 goals from his 24 appearances - but he has failed to secure a regular role in attack throughout his stint in France.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has taken up the central position up front more often than not, leaving Cavani frustrated out on the wing. It appears, then, that his time at the Ligue 1 giants could be up sooner rather than later.

"There is a problem with Cavani’s behaviour but my job is to think of the entire squad as a collective," said Blanc.

Cavani can leave 

"We did hold a staff meeting and among the various issues we discussed were Cavani and his complaints.

"The desires of the individual can’t affect the rest of the team.

"I believe that he can score here but I understand if he wants to consider other career opportunities."

Premier League trio 

It really could be time for Cavani to enter the Premier League scene. But who could he join as he goes in search of his next career move? 

Well, the same report from the Mail links the trio of Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal to the aforementioned striker. 

It's far from certain as to whether either club will make their move for the player, but it would certainly make an exciting transfer. In truth, the trio of clubs could do with adding to their attack but will anyone take a risk on Cavani? 

The 28-year-old has his faults, of course, but he certainly has the credentials to score goals in the Premier League. 

Should Manchester United, Arsenal or Liverpool swoop for Cavani in this transfer window? Have your say below!
