SkyBet have the current Premier League leaders ahead at 5/1 in the race to land the Paris Saint-Germain frontman during the current transfer window, with title rivals Chelsea next at 10/1.
There have been reports of the Uruguayan striker being unsettled in France with Ibrahimovic taking the whole lime light. Manchester United’s absence from the list of favourites is somewhat peculiar, given that they have been strongly linkedwith a move for the 26-year-old in recent days.
Indeed, reports over the weekend suggested that the Premier League champions – who will surely be on the lookout for several new recruits before February – were eyeing a potentially sensational swoop for the unsettled marksman.
Those same reports claim that any deal for Cavani – who only moved to Ligue 1 from Serie A during the summer – is likely to cost Manchester United at least £55 million.
Whether Arsenal would be willing to pay such an extravagant price to sign Cavani themselves must surely be considered unlikely, however.
