Arsenal transfer news
The Uruguayan front-man has been linked as a replacement for Radamel Falcao at Old Trafford, though Arsenal are also keen to bring in a big name upfront next season.
Danny Welbeck has not been convincing since joining the Gunners, while Alexis Sanchez could do with a more suitable partner upfront.
Cavani would likely cost between £50-60m, which would smash Arsenal’s previous record transfer fee paid to sign Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid in 2013.
