“Arsene MUST bid for Napoli striker Edinson Cavani”

By on December 20, 2011

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has urged Arsene Wenger to try and sign Napoli forward Edinson Cavani in the January transfer window.

The ex-Gunners record goal-scorer was writing in his column in The Sun newspaper when he suggested Wenger should target the Uruguayan sensation due to Arsenal’s over-reliance on Robin van Persie.

Cavani has become one of Europe’s hot-properties after putting in some fine display’s during the last 18 months with Napoli, that has seen him net 41 goals in just 61 games. His form hasn’t gone un-noticed with the likes of Man Utd, Liverpool, Man City, Tottenham and Chelsea all linked with the 24-year-old in recent months, as well as several other top European sides.

Napoli have no intention in selling Cavani and it’s understood they have slapped a £40m price-tag on his head to ward off interested parties, but that hasn’t stopped Wright from putting his name forward as a potential Arsenal signing next month:

“Without a top-class attacker alongside Robin van Persie, Arsenal are only one injury away from everything blowing up in their faces.

“That’s why I think Arsene MUST bid for Napoli striker Edinson Cavani — El Matador — if there is any chance of tempting him from Italy next month.

“It will be more difficult now Napoli have reached the Champions League knockout stages, largely thanks to his performances in the group games.

“But plenty of other clubs around Europe haven’t given up the ghost, and I’d love to see Arsene in the mix as well.

“If, heaven forbid, anything did happen to RVP, you’d fear Arsenal would be stuffed. That’s a ridiculous pressure to carry on your shoulders every week.”

Despite Wright’s protestations, it’s highly unlikely the Gunners would pursue a player who would command a fee over double their current transfer record.
