Arsenal will turn it’s attention to Edison Cavani should they fail to sign Jamie Vardy, according to the Express.
The Uruguay striker is said to be seeking a move away from PSG and has set his heart on a move to the Premier League. He recently rejected a £500,000 a week move to China as he wants to continue playing in Europe and Arsenal are prepared to offer him that opportunity should the club’s bid for Vardy fails.
Arsenal activated Vardy’s £20m release clause last week and offered the player a salary package worth £120,000 a week. However, Leicester City are desperate for the player to stay and the striker has decided to take his time before making his decision. The player is thought to be leaning towards staying at Leicester City and Wenger would swiftly turn to Cavani should that be the case.
Wenger is keen to sign a world class striker this summer as he prepares his squad for next season. It is unlikely that PSG would let Cavani leave easily after losing Zlatan Ibrahimovic but should the player push for a move, the French club could just decide to cash in.
Cavani netted 19 league goals in 32 appearances for PSG last season.
