Caught Offside have revealed in a sensational report that Arsenal are going to break their transfer record and sign EdinsonCavani from Paris Saint-Germain for £50m.
The Uruguayan striker has been linked away from France for the entire summer and the report states that he is keen to join the Gunners. He has held talks with Arsene Wenger and Arsenal owner Ivan Gazidis.
Consequently, the North Londoners are making an opening bid of £50m for the former Napoli striker. Arsenal had tried to lure him away from Napoli as well but PSG succeeded in signing him then. However, the Gunners are hoping now that this bid will land the player at the Emirates.
Rumours are also suggesting that Santi Cazorla or Lukas Podolski could be a part of the deal to ensure the signing of the striker.
ESPN are reporting that Liverpool have also inquired for the player. Cavani’s agent revealed that Liverpool also made a bid earlier this summer.
