With a move for Benzema seeming more and more unlikely, Arsenal could be set to move in for Paris Saint-Germain forward, Edinson Cavani.
Arsenal are currently in the market for a top class forward as they look to challenge for the Barclays premier league title this season and Real Madrid forward, Karim Benzema was reported to be Arsene Wenger’s top choice. In recent weeks however, Arsenal’s chances of signing the former Lyon man have reduced as Rafa Benitez seems unwilling to let the forward go. According to Fichajes.net Arsenal could be set to move for Edison Cavani. While Cavani would make a good acquisition for Arsenal, the deal might not happen as the Uruguayan forward has emerged as a key player in Laurent Blanc’s side and the French champions might be unwilling to let the forward go especially now, when the future of Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still uncertain. Arsenal still have some money to spend according to Wenger and they might look to invest it in Cavani.
While PSG are not going to be willing to let Cavani go, it is believed that a bid of about 40 million Euros could bring them to the negotiation table
