Liverpool Receive Massive Encouragement In Chase For Edison Cavani

Reports emanating from the English press suggest that Paris St. Germain forward, Edison Cavani has been the subject of interest from English clubs.

The Uruguayan international has been one of Europe’s top strikers for a couple of years and the 27 year old has shown his quality in all the clubs he’s featured in.

The Paris St. Germain forward made his name after his move to Italian side, Napoli for 17million Euros. The long haired striker went on to score 66 goals in his first two seasons, followed by a 38 goal hurl in his third season.

Clubs reported to be interested are the trio of Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool, who all seem to be in need of the Uruguayan’s very effective abilities, but in varying degrees.

In July 2013, Cavani transferred to Paris St. Germain for a reported 55million pounds making him the most expensive signing in French football history.

After only one complete season with the Paris team, speculation has already begun as to his future with the French club.

According to Paris St Germain Legend Jerome Rothen, Cavani won’t stay for too long at the Parisian club

“He can still succeed in Paris, but his performances will be more or less the same. Everything depends on the tactical choices of Laurent Blanc. However I can’t see him staying long term in Paris”

The long haired striker has not fared as well has he did in Italy but he is a known quality and teams will fall over themselves to get him on their team.

Despite Liverpool’s acquisition of Mario Balotelli, the side from Anfield may be wary of placing all their hopes on the very inconsistent Italian.

Brendan Rodgers side are yet to adequately replace Luis Suarez this season and their poor record of 4 defeats this season is proof of that.

Chelsea on the other hand have the most inform striker in the league; but with Diego Costa’s history of muscle injuries, the Blues will be wary of putting their hopes on a Loic Remy, who is a few steps below in quality. All this, coupled with the fact that Cavani can also play as winger or alongside Costa as a support striker.

Cavani seems not to have been appreciated at the French club, as the striker has been shunted to the wings to accommodate the Swedish striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

According to Jerome Rothen, Cavani is not indispensable.

“For me Cavani is not among the great attackers, like Ibra, Messi or Ronaldo. He’s a player who needs others and will not decide something with a bit of class, an individual environment”

Despite the legend’s assertion, the lanky Uruguayan international would represent a huge upgrade on a side like the gunners, who currently have the duo of Welbeck and Giroud as first team strikers.

The Arsenal Boss might decide to splash big on the highly rated striker, as his players have let him down this season against top sides.

No matter which of the 3 clubs he ends up in, the Uruguayan will do a lot for the spectacle and overall quality of the Premier Leagues.
