Arsenal have been placed on high alert after learning that Paris Saint Germain are willing to sell striker Edinson Cavani when the transfer window re-opens in January, according to the Metro.
The Gunners were linked with a number of high profile strikers over the summer, including Cavani (via Metro) but ultimately failed in their attempts to add to their sole signing of Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech.
The Ligue 1 champions were reportedly not keen on losing the 28-year-old over the summer, but a report in the Daily Express is now claiming that they may be ready to listen to offers for him in the new year.
The Express cites reports from Spain claiming that both Arsenal and Manchester United are now monitoring the situation closely with the view of making an offer when the transfer window reopens.
Cavani is reported by the Metro to be valued at £45m.
Both Arsenal and United are in desperate need of a striker to help maintain their respective challenges for the Premier League title. Arsene Wenger failed to act, while United were only able to bring in Monaco’s Anthony Martial (via BBC), meaning Cavani will likely become hot property during the next window.
