Reading between the lines, it looks like the Arsenal manager was still hoping that the France international striker Karim Benzema might still be available from Real Madrid, but now that the player himself has poured cold water on those hopes, Arsene Wenger has just a few days to sign a striker that everyone seems to think we need.
But there are not that many out there and the ones that are good enough to really improve our squad are not easy to get. Most are just about impossible, especially at this phase of the transfer window, but apparently there is a chance that PSG might accept a good offer for Edinson Cavani.
So a report in The Telegraph claiming that the Uruguayan is on Wenger´s shopping list might be true. Hopefully the Gunners will be banging in a big offer to the French champions in the next few days. Whether that will be enough to get us the striker or not is anybody´s guess.
