According to the London Evening Standard, Arsenal super fan Claude has revealed that Arsene Wenger is nearing a sensational double swoop, amidst speculation linking the side to Karim Benzema and Edinson Cavani.
The super supporter, who apparently has insider information, has spoken to Arsenal Fan TV and indicated that the Gunners are set to splash the cash between now and the season’s end.
“We definitely need another striker,” the high-profile fan began.
“I hate to say it but I’ve got my contacts—we are trying desperately to sign two players from one club. I’ve been told I can’t say no more.”
The Standard suggest that the players Arsenal are nearing a move for are Paris Saint-Germain striker Cavani and Real Madrid frontman Benzema, both of whom have been linked with a move to North London in recent weeks.
Olivier Giroud started the Emirates Stadium heavyweights’ draw with Liverpool on Monday evening, but hasn’t yet convinced as a line-leading centre-forward for a genuine title contender.
