Edinson Cavani is one of the best strikers in the world, and with his contract at Paris Saint-Germain running out at the end of the season, there is no surprise that Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are among the clubs linked with the Uruguay international striker.

Tottenham are on the hunt for a new striker due to the injury to Harry Kane, and The Independent has claimed that Cavani is a name on their radar.

According to reports in The Express and The Sun, Arsenal are looking at the 32-year-old, while The Manchester Evening News has reported that Manchester United and Atletico Madrid want the former Napoli star.

 

The report in The Manchester Evening News has claimed that PSG value Cavani at £30 million, but manager Thomas Tuchel has said that he wants the striker to stay at the club.

The Daily Mail quotes Tuchel as saying about Cavani: “If I want him to stay? It's better, to achieve our goals, to have him, yes.”

Paris Saint-Germain stay?

Cavani will become a free agent at the end of the season, and the striker could demand a higher wage from interested clubs then that he could now.

Moreover, PSG are a very rich club, and if keeping Cavani in the team enhances their chances of winning the Ligue 1 title and the Champions League this season, then the French giants will not be forced to sell him.
