PSG superstar wants to make Arsenal switch

PSG striker, Edinson Cavani is holding out for a new year move to Premier League side Arsenal, according to reports from the Metro.

The Uruguayan is valued at around £50m, but it appears the striker is hoping the French outfit will lower his valuation so his dream move can become more accessible. Arsenal may be put off the £50m fee attached to Cavani and may have to look elsewhere if they wish to add another striker to their ranks.

However, Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger has been told there is money to spend during the January transfer window. A window that Wenger rarely utilises, however, with defensive frailties at the forefront of Wenger’s mindset, he may be inclined to bolster his back four before anything else; putting the Cavani deal on hold.

Cavani’s bullish style would make him a useful outlet for the Gunners. Cavani has been in good form, scoring 12 times in 22 appearances in all competitions. Olivier Giroud is their only powerhouse striker and without him, Arsenal look a little lightweight up top. Cavani could prove to be the perfect missing link, but will Wenger and Arsenal snap him up in January?
