Arsenal and Man Utd submit offers for PSG striker Edinson Cavani

Arsenal and Manchester United have submitted offers for Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani but Atletico Madrid are favourites to sign the Uruguay international.

The 32-year-old has struggled for game time this campaign at PSG as a result of injuries and increased competition for places in attack after the signing of Mauro Icardi.

He has started just four league games and played a bit-part role in the group stage of the Champions League. Edinson Cavani has scored five goals in 13 matches, mainly from the bench.

With his contract set to expire this summer, PSG are keen to sell Cavani during the January transfer window rather than allow him to leave for free.

And, according to Spanish outlet El Chiringuito, Cavani is considering offers from Premier League teams like Arsenal, United and Italian giants Inter Milan.

But they also report that Atletico Madrid are in leading position to sign Cavani and talks have already been held with PSG’s sporting director Leonardo.

They also say that Cavani prefers to play for Diego Simeone in Madrid if he is to leave Paris Saint-Germain.

Cavani has been an outstanding player for PSG since his signing from Napoli in 2013, scoring 198 goals in 290 games, winning five league titles, four French Cups and five French League Cups.

However, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel has made it clear that he wants to keep hold of the former Napoli striker until the end of the campaign.

He said: ‘It has been difficult for Edinson after picking up an injury. That meant he lost rhythm, whilst other players were in good form in his position.

‘But whilst he is here he must continue to prepare in the best way possible.

‘I trust that he will stay with us, and I do not imagine anything else happening.’
