Manchester United transfer news
The Ligue 1 giants want to offload the Uruguayan and replace him with Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus in what would no doubt be a smart piece of transfer business.
Cavani has not managed to find his best form in France, though that has not harmed his reputation with Premier League clubs as they now look to pounce this January.
Arsenal are particularly keen on th 27-year-old, with United unsure whether or not to stick with loan signing Radamel Falcao this season.
