Arsenal fans might be forgiven for not believing me on this, well, Arsene Wenger’s recent track record of the people he signed certainly does seem to point that he won’t pay 30 million pounds for a player, but it seems it is real.
The man in question is Napoli’s very own Edinson Cavani. Along with that, Newcastle United are involved in a bidding war with Arsenal, with Newcastle having that extra transfer cash left over from their striker Andy Carroll’s departure from St. James Park. Newcastle have been struggling with form lately and are looking to add added firepower to their attack.
Wenger is already battling to retain the services of captain Cesc Fabregas and with little up front at the Emirates, the French tactician is beginning to consider an uncharacteristic splash of the transfer cash. Along with that, Padrew has made no secret of his desire to buy a new world class striker.
Cavani has brought Napoli to second place in the Serie A and the Uruguayan has scored an amazing 29 goals in all competitions so far this season, leaving him as one of the most heavily sought-after strikers around. Van Persie’s niggling injuries and Chamakh’s form has prompted the possible move, as Arsenal are seeking to buy a new striker.
