The striker’s contract comes to an end next summer, and as such, both the Gunners and Barca are eyeing a cut-price deal to sign an experienced and versatile player who would represent an excellent option off the bench for either side. He was linked to Liverpool earlier in the year, although it remains to be seen whether Jurgen Klopp is taken by the former Napoli frontman.
However, while Arsenal and Barcelona fans will be delighted to learn of Lavezzi’s potential impending arrival, they may be disappointed to learn that Lavezzi no longer comes accompanied by marvellous showgirl, model and TV presenter Jesica Cirio.
The 30-year-old Italo-Argentine beauty and the Paris-based attacker were formerly an item, but went their separate ways last year.
While here at Caught Offside we’re dead excited about Lavezzi’s potential arrival in English football, we’re gutted that Cirio won’t be joining him. As a commemoration of her beauty, we’ve put together our favourite Cirio shots – check out her greatest bikini and lingerie snaps here, and follow her on Twitter @ for more sizzling photos.
