Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger ready to make shock last-minute bid for striker


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will make a last-ditch attempt to sign either Edinson Cavani or Gonzalo Higuain.

After it was officially announced that Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema was staying put, the Frenchman has turned his attention to two of Europe's most lethal strikers.

Cavani, a former Napoli player, and Higuain, who took over from the Uruguayan at the Stadio San Paolo, both scored two goals last weekend.

According to reports in Italy, Cavani is happy at Paris Saint-Germain and will not leave the club in the summer.

But Higuain's situation is different.

The 27-year-old is not happy to play for a team that will not feature in this season's Champions League and is desperate to leave Italy to enjoy a new experience in the Premier League.

He has a £69.1m release clause in his contract and Napoli will open talks if a club accepts to meet the clause.
