Arsene Wenger has been tracking the 27 year old for some months and may hope that the fact that the former Napoli man is apparently unsettled at the Parc des Princes may aid their push to secure the talented attacker.

A move for Cavani may be something of a surprise to many given that Wenger has brought in Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck from Barcelona and Man United respectively over the summer, though perhaps Olivier Giroud’s long term injury concerns are a factor.
