    Arsenal are being linked with Cavani again. What do you guys make of this?

    could see it happening if PSG get di maria, as then they would be forced to sell atleast one player..

    But given that they seem to be pretty much out of the race for di maria now, I cant see it happening - and even if it were possible, its probably more then wenger would spend..

    If it did by some miricle happen though:

    Arsenal sign Cavani becuse PSG sign di maria
    PSG sign di maria because madrid sign J rodriguez
    Madrid sign rodriguez to compensate for barca signing suarez..

    = Thank you liverpool..

    if it isn't reported by one of the reliable reputable sites, just ignore it.

    according to caughtoffside, we signed salah last window.
    we also made a bid for cavani yesterday too.

    it's just all a load of rubbish - nobody knows a thing.
    arsenal still have money, so why not link them to cavani, di maria, reus and all the other big names?

    however, if you guys did manage to get cavani, i'd probably cry in the corner a little.
    there would be no competition for top 4 - you'd be going for the title easy.

    I don't want Cavani, he sucks I would prefer spending £50m on Ibra and having him for 3 years.

    Right now our solid options look like Benzema, Balotelli and Cavani, and I already stated Cavani is terrible.

    Also, Manolas? I would rather not.

    Cavani is better than Benz and Balo. We wont be going for any of them though. Don't mind Manolas either, we're not getting a first team defender to play second fiddle to mert/kosc so a young adequate defender will do for now.

    Cavani has shown again and again that he is terrible in front of goal. Without Ibra or Suarez he is nothing, and even with them he can't do anything.

    Srs?? Are you forgetting we have Giroud? With the midfield we have Cavani would bag goals for fun. Manolas was Greece's stand out performer at the World Cup majority of their players were rubbish. Kos is injured would you like Monreal playing at CB?

    Cavani is barely an upgrade on Giroud who, lets not kid ourselves, manages to occasionally be world class in games. He is probably the most over-rated striker around at the minute. Manolas was a stand out performer of one of the most boring football teams to have ever existed. I don't see why you think 'Monreal or Manolas' is a valid argument. There are plenty of CBs out there, and I just dont think Manolas is our best option. Apparently we have another £80m sitting in the bank, lets use it to get an amazing defender, not one who is there to fill the void left by injured players.

    Okay then who would you sign as a CB replacement for Vermaelen?

    Off the top of my head, Agger, Nastasic, Howedes. All are affordable, and all are good.

    Talking numbers would lead one to assume that Giroud is good enough to be Arsenal's 1st choice striker. 22 goals last season is not exactly terrible, but the majority can agree he is just not competent enough for a title challenging team.

    Giroud got 22 in 50 odd appearances, Cavani topped that in less appearances and from the wing. His Napoli record is 130 goals + assists in 138 appearances. He also scores a greater range of goals than Giroud i.e headers, left foot, right foot. etc etc.

    i can't tell if you are trolling but w.e

    I am not trolling. For £51m I would rather buy a platinum plated baseball bat and just hit Giroud every time he mucked up. Maybe we can beat some consistency out of him. Seriously, £51m for Cavani? No thanks. He may be 'good' but not for that price.

    Not sure if srs

    brb 78 in 104 for Napoli
    brb 16 in 30 for PSG from the wing

    With your midfield he'd get even better numbers
