Arsenal fans were crying out for Arsene Wenger to sign the Uruguay international striker Edinson Cavani in the summer of 2013. That was a year after the Frenchman had brought in Oliver Giroud and Lukas Podolski after the departure of Robin van Persie and it is safe to say that we were not too impressed.
But Cavani went for around 65 million euros to PSG from his Italian club Napoli and they spent some of that money, too much really, in beating us to another striker in Gonzalo Higuain. Neither have exactly lit up their new clubs, but the Arsenal fans could finally be set to see what all the fuss over Cavani was about.
A Metro report claims that he is almost certainly going to leave the French champions in the summer after his frustration with Laurent Blanc for continually playing him out of position boiled over when he was subbed off in PSG’s game at the weekend.
There will probably be a number of big clubs around Europe interested in taking the powerful centre forward, especially as his transfer fee should now be as low as £40 million. But with Arsenal now having Alexis Sanchez, Welbeck, Walcott and the new and improved Giroud on our books, do we really need him anymore?
