Reports in the Metro suggest that Arsenal have started work on a stunning deal to sign the Uruguayan in the upcoming transfer window, having been tracking him intensively in the last few months.
The source explains that the Gunners first showed an interest in the 27-year-old during the summer, but the move was called off following an injury to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
However, Cavani has continued to find himself a bit-part player with the Ligue 1 side, and is now desperate to move on in order to secure first-team football.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who is keen on signing a new forward to partner summer signing Danny Welbeck, sanctioned the move this week and senior officials within the North London club are now working on trying to do a deal with PSG.
