3. Edinson Cavani

According to reports from The Daily Mail, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United strike target Edinson Cavani could be shown the exit door at PSG. 

The Uruguay international arrived at Parc de Princes for a whopping £55million in summer 2013 and has gone on to net 69 goals in 120 appearances across all competitions – including ten strikes in Ligue 1 so far this season.

But the 28-year-old has regularly expressed his unhappiness in playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, often utilised as a wide forward to accommodate the Sweden legend as PSG’s lone frontman.

And it appears Parisians boss Laurent Blanc, who hasn’t called upon Cavani since scoring a winner against St. Etienne in the French League Cup in mid-December, has had enough of the 6-foot striker’s complaining – admitting he wouldn’t stop the player from leaving the club.

As quoted by The Daily Mail, he said; “There is a problem with Cavani’s behaviour but my job is to think of the entire squad as a collective. We did hold a staff meeting and among the various issues we discussed were Cavani and his complaints.

“The desires of the individual can’t affect the rest of the team. I believe that he can score here but I understand if he wants to consider other career opportunities.”

Arsenal and Manchester United were linked with Cavani last summer and still on the lookout for added firepower, The Daily Mail speculate both clubs could revive their long-term interest following Blanc’s remarks. They also moot Liverpool as potential suitors of the South American, albeit with considerably less conviction.
