The Arsenal manager is a big fan of the Uruguayan striker who has been on fire for Napoli the last three seasons. Arsene Wenger is usually circumspect about who the club is interested in so his admission that Edinson Cavani is someone who might be a potential transfer prospect is noteworthy.
He also mentioned buying Cavani would cost a whole lot but here is the significant part, " [But] our banker lives just next to me at the moment and he is ready if we find the right player." When was the last time Wenger so openly talked about splashing the cash? These are signs that he maybe getting worried that fourth place is slipping out of Arsenal's grasp. The lack of consistent goalscoring is indeed a serious issue and unlike last season when RVP caught fire at the right time, there is no one right now in this squad that shows any inclination or more pertinently, an ability to do so.
Wenger also mentioned that they are interested in Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha. And he is 99% confident that Theo Walcott's Arsenal deal will work out.
